Spring must be here, because trains start running once again this weekend for our 11th season!
Come on out and ride the Mine Train train and blow up the Ol' Susquehanna Mine. Once you blow the mine and get your ore we will teach you how to pan for gem stones.
There are over 40 different gem stones you can collect and take home! If you are into fossils, we have ore that just has fossils and even arrow heads!
Also this week, the Warren County Winery Train starts for the season!
Come ride the train to the beautiful Villa Milagro Vineyard and sample their wines!
The Ol Susquehanna Mine & The Mine  Train
The original mine shaft is back in production.  Come tour the grounds, listen to an interactive history of the ol' Susquehanna Mine and pan for real gem stones you can take home. One person in each group  can "blow the mine" and everyone can witness the mine shaft explosion.*
Gemstone Panning is a great activity for all ages.  Participants may find up to 11 ounces of gemstones in a single bag which may include amethyst, rubies, rose quartz, emeralds, crystals, and an arrowhead.  All gems are of high quality and may be suitable for cutting, polishing, and mounting.  With every mine train ticker you will  receive one bag of  mining ore from  the Ole' Susquehanna Mine.
Upon arriving at the mine site your guide will tell you the story of Sylas Smith and how he found the mine and about his tragic death which left the mind uncovered until this very year! Next you will walk over the the Ole' Susquehanna mines operating sluice and learn how to pan for gem stones. once you understand how to pan give it a try and see if you can find some gems!

After a Steam Train ride along the Delaware and a short bus ride through rolling farmlands, you will arrive at Villa Milagro Vineyards ( .
There you will learn how grapes are grown and made into wine.  Then you will sample their delicious wines and have an opportunity to purchase them at the source.  If you would like to enjoy your wine with a picnic, bring a lunch and relax at tables in tree groves at the Ol'Susquehanna Mine and Corn Maze or at the station in Phillipsburg.  You are welcome to detrain at the Mine and spend as much time as you like relaxing in the picnic grove then catch a later train
