  • Take a scenic ride along the beautiful Allegheny River, from Schenley to Johnetta.  On certain days, due to various factors, we may use the original line along the Kiski River from Schenley to Bagdad.  The KJR reserves the right to use either line on any given day without notification of change to passengers.

  • Unique, fun, safe and affordable, with clean, comfortable cars.
