With the start of fall, the Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad’s seasonal festivities are in full swing. Starting Oct. 1, the local railroad service is providing scenic tours of the Oil City area with tickets starting at $13 for children and $19 for adults, ranging all the way to $30 for First Class tickets. Tours will be available Wednesday through Saturday until Oct. 16. Weekday tours depart at 3 p.m., while Saturday rides will depart at either 11 a.m. or 3 p.m. depending on your choice.

The rides will depart from the Perry Street station and the tour will take approximately three hours. Officials with the event advise that you arrive about one hour prior to the listed boarding times. It’s recommended that you make reservations early and buy tickets in advance, due to the popularity of the event and its likeliness to sell out.

All cars offered are enclosed but each train has open gondola cars that passengers can walk to once the conductor gives the OK to move about.
