Harrisburg, Lincoln and Lancaster

Stone Gables Estate is home to the Harrisburg, Lincoln & Lancaster Railroad which features a replica of an 1868 steam locomotive, pulling replicas of a mid-1860’s combine car, an 1848 Pioneer Coach, and the 1865 presidential private car, “United States,” which was used as Lincoln’s Funeral Car.

Passengers get an opportunity to ride the train through the center of the 275-acre Stone Gables Estate, passing an original hand-cut and stacked stone wall through the woodlands with 250 to 350-year-old “witness” trees along the rail line. The line was chartered in 1835 as the Harrisburg, Portsmouth, Mt. Joy & Lancaster Railroad. Construction for this line was completed in 1838. It was sold in 1860 to the Pennsylvania Railroad. The tracks were removed in 1903 when the new Pennsylvania Railroad mainline opened through Elizabethtown, which today is the Amtrak line running between Harrisburg and Philadelphia.
