About the event
OCTOBER 4 –TUES
ALTOONA HORSESHOE CURVE/ AMTRAK
Early afternoon will find us traveling through the autumn colors to Altoona, PA. Upon arrival we will visit the Horseshoe Visitor Center to ride the funicular (of it is repaired) to the “Bend” for a chance to see trains circling the curve. Last year we saw five trains make the circuit! We’ll make a quick stop at Benzel’s Pretzels and Boyer’s Candy, now home to Clark Bar and Mallow Cups for outlet shopping. Next stop, all aboard Amtrak for a ride around the curve! Our destination is Latrobe, PA for dinner at DiSalvo’s Station, the renovated Pennsylvania RR Station complete with a cobblestone train yard and a dining car! Please note that there are 25 steps leading down to the restaurant and this is the ONLY exit to the Latrobe station. Our coach will return us late evening.
$149 - TOUR INCLUDES: Admission, Train Ride, Dinner
