Tour a real Anthracite Coal Mine and take a ride on an old-fashioned narrow gauge steam train at Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine. The Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine is located in Ashland, PA, a town that lies in the anthracite coal region of eastern Pennsylvania. It is worth the drive to see this fine attraction. There are many mines in the area. Visitors ride into the tunnel on mine cars rebuilt to carry passengers. You are always invited to stroll through the local playground and park as well as check out their various outdoor mining displays. The Henry Clay Steam Train ride takes you on a scenic three-quarter mile ride around the side of Mahanoy Mountain to show you another kind of mining called strip mining.
