Visitors can take a 4 mile ride which begins and ends here at the Richfol Shelter. Shelters of this design were built and placed along the connection built in 1908 from the Washington & Canonsburg Railway at Canonsburg to Washington Junction on the Charleroi Interurban line in Bethel. Car 66 is a center entrance car built by JG Brill in 1926 for the Philadelphia & West Chester Traction Company. This car was acquired by the museum in 1970 and restored to its 1950 appearance.
