Pennsylvania - Gallitzin Tunnels Park & Museum

Gallitzin, PA - Our recently renovated park, adjacent to the Gallitzin Tunnels, exhibits a restored 1942 Pennsylvania Railroad N5C Caboose. Visitors can use the ramp and platform to climb aboard this unit. The caboose has been restored to its original 1942 condition where visitors can see the sleeping quarters, eating area, old fashioned pot bellied cooking and heating stove, cupola, air-brake system, lighting facilities, bathroom facilities, signal lights and an observation post looking down on the newly installed PRR Walkway. Children can romp in the play area which features a wooden train. An operating vintage PRR position-light signal "guards" the entrance to the park. Excellent area for picture taking. Handicapped accessible.

A recent addition to this beautiful Tunnels Park/Caboose visitors’ area is a community heritage museum. he museum area features a display of pictures depicting the community's industrial, social, and religious heritage. Many historical artifacts, donated by townspeople and railroad enthusiasts are prominently displayed in special kiosks. It houses a small souvenir shop supervised by a docent. Immediately adjacent to the museum is a 24 seat theater which has a schedule of video tapes, programs dealing with railroads, heritage and other current topics.
