Pa. Tourist Railroad Lands Grant

A Pennsylvania tourist railroad has received a $176,470 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to create a multimedia educational program on the railroad’s history.

The Colebrookdale Railroad, which operated nine miles of track between Boyerstown and Pottstown, received the money as part of a grant program to help educational and cultural programs survive the COVID-19 pandemic.

The funding will be established to create a virtual and on-site Rails of the Revolution program for children in grades 3-8.

The grant was one of 317 grants awarded to 2,300 applicants.

In the meantime, the Colebrookdale has yet to reopen during the pandemic and has not said when it will resume operations.
