On September 17 - 18, come enjoy UNLIMITED rides on our vintage trains! We'll be running several of our operational locomotives all weekend long, and you can ride them all day for a single fare. Travel on a passenger train, hop a caboose on a freight train, ride in a motor car, play special kids' games, and more!

  • Ride freight and passenger trains from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.

  • Use the Caboose Hop between the Nelson Crossing Depot and Camp Creek Yard to visit the locomotive and car shops and view additional exhibits.

  • Ride a motor car down our tracks and experience the rails just like maintenance workers of the past.

  • Enjoy the large children's area, including riding pedal cars.

  • Eat at the concession area, which features several local food trucks.

  • Browse the Museum's gift shop, open throughout the event for railroad gear and souvenir needs.

Gates open at 9 a.m. each day. Trains run continually from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The last train departures are at around 4 p.m. each day.

ALL-DAY TICKETS — ride as many times as you want! Children under 2 ride FREE with paying adult or senior.
