Special Event! Stuff a Boxcar!
July 13 @ 10:00 AM - 4:00 PM
On Saturday & Sunday, July 13th and 14th, we encourage our visitors to bring non-perishable food items for donation to local food pantries. We will have a narrow gauge boxcar by our parking lot, and our goal is to completely fill the car over the course of the weekend!
Each person who brings non-perishable food items to the railway will receive a complimentary round trip ticket to use that day!
