We hope you enjoy the IRT and all of its activities and amenities. Please note that much of the maintenance work along the trail is accomplished by individual volunteers, organizations such as the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, Garden Clubs, Rotary, Lions, Local Church Groups and the IRT Commissioners.
Your tax deductible membership / contribution will provide for the maintaining and improving the IRT. Our sincere thanks for your support.
You can download our Membership / Donation Form for more information.
The IRT has acquired from a Cement Co. in Odessa, TX, the Plymouth Yard Locomotive that was previously used at the Dragon Cement Co. in Northampton. It is on display at the Portland St. Trailhead in North Whitehall. The IRT had created a fundraiser to restore the locomotive to its original colors when it was at the Dragon Cement Co. Cost estimate is $4,000.
You can direct your Donation for Restoration of the Locomotive on the Form here. Thank you for your help in preserving a historical artifact from the days when Lehigh Valley was the largest cement-producing center in the world.
