Laura Kennedy, director of passenger service on the Lehigh Gorge Scenic Railway, said she's amazed at the interest people have in trains.
The railway operates from May to December from the Old Mauch Chunk Train Station in Jim Thorpe.
She said some people ride as often as three trips in one day. Some other riders appear at least once or twice a month.
In addition, she sees riders from every state in the union as well as from foreign countries. Recently, there were riders aboard from England.
