Steamtown National Historic Site
The former Delaware, Lackawanna and Western Railroad shops are typical of twentieth-century steam-era facilities used for the handling of coal, freight, passenger traffic, and the service and repair of locomotives. The site is now the home of the Steamtown National Historic Site, with its collection of American and Canadian rolling stock, and is operated by the National Park Service as a working museum of the steam railroad era.
