Costumed interpreters perform the tasks that made the Allegheny Portage Railroad function. Programs include: stonecutting, log hewing, rope making, clothing, historic toys and games, and more! Programs vary on a daily basis, so inquire at the Visitor Center to see which programs are being offered the day of your visit. These programs usually require a little help from the younger visitors in the group!
