If you have any questions about ordering, please contact our ticketing partner Etix at (919) 396-5833.  They are very busy, so, typically you will need to leave a call back number message and wait for them to call you back.  If you call over and over again, your sequence in the callback queue will be reset and it will take longer to get a call back.

Please read the important ride info on the Plan your visit page to make your trip comfortable and memorable.

The museum and trains are 100% operated and maintained by volunteers, who are 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, which consist of four open-air passenger cars and a caboose, are pulled by one of vintage diesel-electric locomotives.

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.
