The Allegany County Train Pull for Charities
A One of a Kind Community Effort!

Each year law enforcement, business and the community team up with the Western Maryland Scenic Railroad to sponsor a unique event, one like none other in the entire world…. “The Train Pull.”

Twenty people grasping a rope to see how fast and far they can pull a real, live, working, steam locomotive…Mountain Thunder!!!

Did I mention th at she weighs in at over 500,000 lbs.?
Yes, that’s more than 250 tons of pure steel!!

To our knowledge there is no other event
in the world like it, resulting in each pull being an attempt for a new world record!!
