Pa. Museum’s Long Weekend Has Conrail Theme

The annual night at the museum at the Lake Shore Railway Museum in North East, Pennsylvania, will feature a Conrail theme this year.

Lake Shore Railway MuseumThe museum plans to make its former New York Central U25B No. 2500 look as though it is in its first days of Conrail service.

Also being highlighted will be a Penn Central transfer caboose that became Conrail No. 18374.

The caboose is the museum’s latest acquisition and was assigned to the Erie, Pennsylvania, area in the 1980s and 1990s. It was later retired by CSX, by which time it was parked in Dunkirk, New York.

The musum will open at noon on Saturday, June 19, and remain open for 28 hours through 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 19.

The event features track car rides, museum tours and staged night scenes.
