A quick visit to see how Lincoln traveled to Gettysburg. It's FREE! Don't miss the bust of Lincoln at the back of the station.

Drivers, were friendly and very helpful. Timings were a bit remote, but if you organized yourself in advance, everything was OK. The down side was, the bus did not run into the evening, so doing the evening tours in the town was not an option.

We visited the Gettysburg Railroad Station Museum with our licensed intown guide. He did a great job making history come alive for us. It was wonderful to be in the very same building when Lincoln walked. Be sure to see this museum.
