Diesel Days

2019 Diesel Days

June 22 & 23


The diesel engine, named for Rudolph Diesel, would not have been developed had
it not been for the pioneering efforts of Colonel Edwin Drake, who produced the
first commercially scaled oil well in 1859.
Join us for this 2 day event to celebrate this innovation.
Featured will be several locomotives from different railroads to show off the history
of diesel locomotives, and how the discovery of oil in Pennsylvania
paved the way for the creation of the diesel fuel that makes them run today!
 
We will have one stationary locomotive that you will be able to climb 'aboard' for
an up-close look at the inside workings of a diesel engine.
 
Locomotives scheduled to be featured:
#75, Oil Creek & Titusville Lines, 1947 ALCO/GE
#85 Oil Creek & Titusville Railroad, 1950 ALCO/GE
#3568, Oil Creek & Titusville Lines, 1977 MLW
