On Sunday, August 14, 1955, the Snyder County Centennial Train Ride from Selinsgrove to McClure and back took place from 1 :00 PM to 5 :30 PM. This special passenger train of the famed Pennsylvania Railroad, the nation’s largest at the time, passed through Beavertown going westward and returning eastward, and as such was the last train ever to transport passengers on the PRR. Sunbury & Lewistown line. The first passenger train that traveled on the Sunbury and Lewistown Railroad was on Dec. 1, 1871. The train was in operation until early 1960's but was not a passenger train after 1955.
