Youngwood Historical and Railroad Museum
by Al Hopfer (President, Youngwood Historical and Railroad Museum

For a long time after years of bustle, the station waited. Last May a steam passenger train pulled in, and began rolling on Saturdays to the station on the 12:15 run from Scottdale.

This year, almost within sight, is the 5 Star Hike and Bike Trail -- What's Next?

The Museum is now proudly displaying a Sawmill and a Blacksmith Shop in adjacent Conrail Park. Come and take in some of our heritage while enjoying our popular BBQ's. Also, local vendors are welcome to contact us about being included in our parks activities.

On July 26th, our KIDS DAY will be held at the park from 10 AM until 4 PM, with Hoops and other athletic contests. Practice will be held on Saturday, July 19th at the Park. Contact us for more information.

The Youngwood Model Railroad Hobby Train Shop which was added as a feature this year has not only enchanced the Museum, but offers local persons and "Highlander" steam train passengers an opprotunity to begin, or shop for what is one of our country's fastest non-computer hobby industries.

The Museum offers many opprotunities for visitors including Railroad archives, an HO Club Layout, and a gift shop. Contact us at 724-925-7355.
