Now arriving at Hanover Junction. Steam Into History's 2PM excursion arrives at the historic depot in Hanover Junction, Pennsylvania. Engineer Steve eases his locomotive to the mark which will put the coach platforms exactly where the Conductors have positioned the steps. Shortly, the passengers will disembark and will have 30 minutes to tour the museum inside the depot, or perhaps buy some refreshments from a vendor who has set up his ice cream truck in the nearby parking lot.
The SIH trains no longer run with the locomotive leading on the run north from New Freedom to Hanover Junction. For the first few weeks of operation, the railroad tried that, but they found that the switching operations necessary to get the train configured for the southbound run just took too much time and required too many people to ensure the safety of the passengers. Now, the trains back up on the northbound run, so when they arrive at the junction, there's no switching to do at all. This allows the crew to focus on locomotive service, and permits the patrons to view and take photos around the train without risk of injury.
