Sorry, I had these websites wrong, now are correct as of 9/6/2011.

Pretty cool! If I'm ever down that way, I'll definately check those out. I like the idea of the steam train too. Love steam engines.

I have visited the Pioneer Tunnel and nearby museum. I thought both were excellent. Nice folks and very informative.

Here's a mine that can be toured in western PA that also has a museum room of old time items.

Not far from Pittsburgh in Tarentum PA off Rt 28.

Open Memorial Day to Labor Day.
