J&L Narrow Gauge Season to Resume in June

The J&L Narrow Gauge Railroad in Youngstown will begin its second operating season in June.

The 24-inch railroad operates with a 0-4-0T steam locomotive built by H.K. Porter for a Pittsburgh Steel Mill.

Operating dates for 2020 will be  June 6 and 7, July 4 and 5, August 1 and 2 Sept. 5 and 6, and Oct. 3 and 4.

Trains will operate between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. Tickets are $8 per person with children age 5 and under carried for free.

The railroad is located at 2261 Hubbard Road in Youngstown and is part of the Youngstown Steel Heritage Museum.

Special operating dates are expected to include a private event in September for the Erie Lackawanna Railroad Historical Society annual symposium and in October for the Mahoning Valley Railroad Heritage Association’s annual whistle blow.

The railroad said on a YouTube posting that it may operate additional days for work sessions and private events.
