All Things Engine
Bring Dad out to the Museum on the Saturday before “his” day, and let him revv up his motor! Check out antique tractors, hit-and-miss engines and early diesel engines, Model A and Model T cars, and even a Fire Truck! Take a ride behind our diesel engine-powered locomotive, looping around our 15 acre railyard. Enjoy great local food and concessions as well as Turntable Demonstrations and our own mascot, Spike the Railroad Dog! Activities and train rides all take place between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., with the Museum grounds open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
The familiar whistle has always promised adventure. The gentle rock of the rails has set the rhythm of our lives. Climb aboard one of our Train Rides, and you can re-live the magic of the rails all over again!

For 2021, we will be operating open-air coaches pulled by a vintage diesel locomotive on most operating days. A steam locomotive may be substituted on selected dates!
