Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine & Train Ride Ashland Ical Outlook PDF Print E-mail Google map

Pioneer Tunnel Coal Mine & Train Ride   Opening Day: April 8, 2014   Ashland, Schuylkill County

This looks really cool. . . and super educational. The Pioneer Tunnel is a horizontal drift mine. Its level tunnel runs 1800 feet straight into the side of the Mahanoy Mountain. You make the trip in comfort, riding in open mine cars pulled by a battery-operated mine motor. The mine is inspected daily by the mine's foreman and periodically by state mine inspectors. The temperature inside the mine averages 52 degrees, so a sweater or jacket is recommended. The tour lasts about 35 minutes.
