The Gettysburg Railway (reporting mark GBRY) was a Pennsylvania short-line railroad of RailAmerica that operated on 23.4 mi (37.7 km) between Gettysburg and Mount Holly Springs. The line shipped freight for local companies, interchanged with Conrail[citation needed] at Carlisle Junction in Mount Holly Springs, and operated a tourist railroad under a subsidiary, Gettysburg Scenic Rail Tours. In 1996, the Gettysburg Railway company was created to operate the Gettysburg Railroad purchased by RailAmerica's Delaware Valley Railroad Company[1] (sold to Pioneer RailCorp's Gettysburg and Northern Railroad in 2001).[2]
