Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Mount Gretna Narrow Gauge Railway was a 2 ft gauge narrow gauge line of the Cornwall and Lebanon Railroad in the state of Pennsylvania that operated between 1889 and 1916. The Cornwall and Lebanon Railroad earlier had established a station and picnic ground at Mount Gretna. The Gilded Age iron industrialist and railroad president Robert Habersham Coleman decided that a 4-mile narrow gauge railroad to the top of nearby Governor Dick Mountain would provide an additional tourist draw, and a 0.6-mile spur at milepost 0.75 could service the Pennsylvania National Guard rifle ranges nearby. The line was built to the rare and very narrow gauge of 24 inches.show more
