On April 14th Norfolk Southern and PA Operation Lifesaver conducted their annual “Education and Enforcement Train” ride. This year’s round trip was from Pittsburgh to Brownsville. Approximately 85 participants in this event were able to ride in Norfolk Southern’s restored passenger cars from the 40’s. Passengers on the train included
representatives from NS, various local, state, and government agencies, local police, mayors, and emergency management departments, railroad enthusiasts, the media, and more.
To read more about this educational event please check out these various local newspaper articles.
Once again we need to thank Norfolk Southern for providing this educational and enforcement train ride and most importantly for their continued dedication and support to Operation Lifesaver. Our mission is to provide education and awareness programs dedicated to ending tragic collisions, fatalities, and injuries at highway-rail grade crossings
and on railroad rights of way.

It’s that time of the year again for Thomas the Tank Engine at the Strasburg Railroad. Once again PA-OL was asked to be a part of this major event at the Strasburg Railroad during the 3rd week of June. Not only did we have Officer Choo Choo from the AMTRAK police back again this year with us, but Sly Fox and Birdie were also able to join us.
Between the three of them, they were able to put smiles on hundreds of faces, make people laugh, but most importantly educate children and adults of all ages about railroad safety. Oh, and lets not forget getting their pictures taken hundreds of times by all those that walked by. Hmm, I wonder who braved the heat and wore the Sly Fox and Birdie costumes? Do you think you know? We need to give a big Thank You to the folks at the Strasburg Railroad for their generous hospitality, and also to all those that helped out at the PA-OL booth for the 2 days we were there. What happens when you put Thomas the Tank and PA-OL together? You get the opportunity to educate thousands of people of
all ages about railroad safety. Through this event we were able to receive many requests for OL presentations for schools and companies located not only in PA, but in NJ, FL, and NY as well. If you would like to see Officer Choo Choo in action, check out this video
Mark your calendars because PA-OL will soon be gearing up to do this again come September 17th, 18th and 19th
