Pioneer Coal Mine and Steam train ride - Ashland, PA

The Pioneer Coal mine and Steam train ride in Ashland, PA has a narrow gage (42" gage) saddle tank 0-4-0 steam engine - the "Henry Clay" that operates on about three quarters of a mile of track from the mine mouth out to a view of some strip mine tailings. This is one of the lesser-known Pennsylvania attractions for rail / steam fans. If you visit, be sure to get the combined ticket which includes a tour into the mine. A very interesting bit of history preserved here, and it's very family-friendly as well.
