Saturday, July 15 - WWII Re-enactment. The OC&T Railroad will become a military train from the 1940's and Perry Street Station will be transformed into an encampment for both US and German forces. On display will be uniforms, weapons and other items from the era so be sure to arrive early so you can have time to view all the displays. Station opens at 9 am.

German forces will board the train and head down the valley. Allied forces will be keeping an eye on the train with the intent of over taking it. Are spies on-board? A battle will ensue at Rynd Farm Station. This WWII Re-enactment is hosted by the 99th Infantry Division Historical Society Inc from Erie, PA.

Train departs 409 S Perry St, Titusville, promptly at 1 pm. Plan to arrive at least 1 hour prior for boarding, but we recommend arriving even earlier to give yourself time to tour the encampment and displays. Reservations strongly recommended as this event does sell out.

Special event pricing applies:
First Class:  $40 per person (all ages)
Coach:  Adults $22, Seniors (60+) $20 and Kids (ages 1-12) $16.
