The Middletown & Hummelstown Railroad is a 24/7 railroad operation. It is a line-haul freight carrier which provides service to industries located along the 7-mile railroad which connects it's name-sake towns. The M&H has prime industrial development land available adjacent to the tracks, and we are available to discuss the options that your business has to locate on our line. These properties are already zoned for industrial use by the several municipalities through which we run, and are available for immediate lease or purchase. The best point of service on a short-line railroad is our ability to offer as-needed-when-needed switching of freight customers, within a 2-hour window in most cases. This is generally not available on a large rail carrier such as NS, the Class I railroad with which we have interchange points at both ends of the M&H. We are willing and eager to meet with any prospective rail customers, and can offer a variety of switching services to suit your specific needs. Please call John at 717-979-3319 (Freight Agent) or Ron at 717-598-7836 (Operations/Maintainer) to arrange a meeting. The M&H has a fleet of diesel-electric locomotives: two light switchers, a heavy switcher, and a transfer engine. We also have a 2-6-0 steam locomotive which operates, but only on special limited occasions.
The railroad also operates tourist passenger trains in season, Santa Claus trains, dinner trains, and other special events throughout the year. The tourist train is comprised of historic passenger equipment and is available for charters of any kind - schools, churches, senior centers, even business meetings. We also even have an operating antique trolley car which is available for charter, although it is not able to operate over the entire line. Call Joyce at 717-944-4435 XT 104 to arrange charters or to inquire about other tourist operations.
