bumper in front of the Scottdale station.

This small tourist railroad runs out of Scottdale PA with one steam switcher and three passenger coaches for excursions through the Laurel Highlands.  Some current destinations include the neighboring towns of Youngwood, Mount Pleasant, Alverton, and the Sony plant at New Stanton.
