The Colebrookdale Railroad recently accepted a $2,500 donation from Ambler Savings Bank, through the Pennsylvania Educational Improvement Tax Credit (EITC) Program.
The railroad has gone through years of renovation to bring its historic trains to their original state and offer educational programming as well as train excursions and dining for the public.
“Donations like the one from Ambler Savings Bank make it possible to continue providing a learning experience and history lesson that many children may not get otherwise,” said Nathaniel Guest, Executive Director of Colebrookdale Railroad Preservation Trust.
Donations through the EITC program allow Pennsylvania school students to participate in their unique educational excursion program for free. Expansion plans for the attraction are ongoing to continue providing an unmatched opportunity for economic development within the tri-county area.
“We are proud to support the Colebrookdale Railroad year after year because of their commitment to the community and children’s education,” said Bonnie Eckenrode, Ambler Savings Bank Bally Branch Manager.
Ambler Savings Bank is a mutually organized community bank headquartered in Ambler, PA with locations in Fairview Village, Limerick, and Bally, as well as several continuing care retirement facilities.
