Ring in the Holiday Retro-Style at the East Broad Top Railroad!
Rockhill Furnace, Pennsylvania
Historically, Christmas in Coal Country was a holiday in the most genuine sense of the word, as it was often one of the few days that mines were closed… allowing miners to pause and spend time with their families. We invite you to bundle up, gather your friends and family, and help us evoke that same sense of togetherness aboard a historic train and vintage trolley. Passengers will enjoy a one-hour diesel-powered train ride aboard a selection of heated cars. The train will depart from the historic Orbisonia Station and travel north, where you will encounter Santa along the way and he will give every child a special gift. Vintage Trolley Ride Each Christmas in Coal Country ticket automatically includes a 45-minute ride on a vintage trolley car through the Blacklog Narrows, which will be decked out in holiday lights. Passengers can take any trolley departure on the date of their trip, either before or after their train excursion. Additional Activities Trains and trolleys will unload at a hub of fun activities.

Sinking of the USS Monitor
Newport News, Virginia
Join us for a lecture with author and historian John V. Quarstein, director emeritus of the USS Monitor Center. Quarstein will conclude the year with a presentation about the remaining days of USS Monitor. ////// About the presentation: On Christmas Eve, 1862, the ironclad Monitor received orders to proceed to Beaufort, NC, to join a planned operation against Wilmington, NC. Executive Officer S. D. Greene noted that Monitor was not a "sea-going vessel." (The ship had almost sunk twice during its March 1862 trip from New York to Hampton Roads.) Monitor left Hampton Roads in clear weather on December 29 but encountered a heavy gale the following afternoon. Heavy seas overwhelmed the ironclad. It sank in the early morning of December 31, 1862. As crew member Frank Butts noted, "The Monitor is no more."
$1 per person, Free for members
