Heritage School Tours
Bring your class to the OC&T for a fun and educational class trip in May or October.
Learn about the world’s first Oil Boom in the 1860’s and what Oil Creek Valley was like during its peak. See how Mother Nature has now reclaimed this beautiful area, making it a great home for a variety of wildlife. Feel the clackity-clack of the train and the away of the coach cars as you pass through places like Wildcat Hollow, where the gamble for oil was first called “wildcatting”. Snacks and souvenirs available for purchase at the Perry Street Station, on the train and at Rynd Farm Station.We also have the only operating Railway Post Office car in the USA – mail a letter or a postcard on the train! In October your group will be riding along side our regular passengers that come to see the beautiful Fall Foliage in the park. As this is our busy season, we do ask for a final count at least 2 weeks prior to your departure date.
Advanced Reservations are required 4 (four) weeks prior to date of your ride.
