Special Event! Our Annual Fall Work Weekend!
October 5 @ 7:00 AM - October 8 @ 3:00 PM
For the past twenty-one years, scores of volunteers from around the country and overseas have traveled to our Museum in late April and over the Columbus Day weekend to help work on numerous projects at the Museum.
Our Fall 2018 Work Weekend will focus on the construction of ~1400 feet of main line track down our Mountain Extension!
We’ll likely have other smaller projects, as well, during the weekend.
Of course, visitors are welcome to just watch & see how our railroad is maintained and grows!
Work will start at 7 a.m. and end around 5 p.m. each day (or a bit earlier Monday). Delicious breakfasts (Saturday – Monday), lunches (all four days) and dinners (Friday – Sunday) will be provided by our Museum.
Steam and diesel powered work and crew trains will operate Thursday and Friday, October 4th & 5th. Steam and diesel work and passenger trains will operate Saturday and Sunday, October 6th & 7th. Diesel work train will operate on Monday, October 8th.
This will be one of the last opportunities to see steam trains in operation this year. Our last 2018 steam trains will run during our Victorian Christmas celebration December 15th.
