The museum and trains are 100% operated and maintained by volunteers, passionate to preserve and share railroad history. Currently, our No. 17 steam locomotive is undergoing regularly scheduled repairs to maintain safety and compliance, in the meantime all trains are pulled by one of vintage diesel-electric locomotives – four open-air passenger cars and a caboose. Please check our Facebook or Home page for any last minute scheduling changes. The railroad reserves the right to substitute equipment or cancel any event or excursion without notice. No refunds or rain checks are offered due to inclement weather. Special event fare and schedule may vary..
