We are also holding a yard sale both days, in the basement of the Percival House.  Proceeds from the yard sale benefit the Museum Archives.

A sample of what’s available at the yard sale – some antique coke bottles.

Trains depart Sheepscot Station on our normal operating schedule, additionally there will be a 5:30 PM Saturday departure for photography at Alna Center Station.

It’s lots of fun, come join us!

Steam Trains resume July 19

Steam-hauled trains resume on the weekend of July 19.  We attempt to run steam trains every weekend in July and August, but because of crew shortage could not run steam last weekend.

Trains run 10, 11, 12:30, 1:30, 2:30 and 3:30 on Saturdays and Sundays.

Trains the Weekend of July 12-13 2014

Normally during our operating days in July we operate with steam.  We regret that this coming weekend (July 12 and 13) we are not able to operate steam.

We ARE open, however!  We’ll be operating with our diesel engine, and our Model T railcar should be available for rides as well.  Please come around for a ride!
