A Look Back At The Turtle Creek Industrial Railroad

Join the Export Historical Society on March 24’th as we take a look at the old railroad running between Trafford and Export. This is the current route of the Westmoreland Heritage Trail. We will be watching a 50 minute documentary on the railroad shot in 1991. This would be appealing to both railfans as well as avid users of the trail. We will also be joined by the guys that used to run the railroad. This is a unique opportunity to learn more about the history of the trail and also see how much things have changed since 1991 along the corridor.

March 24, 2024 – Export Train Station – 2-5 PM
