Description

We seek to educate the public about not only railroad history, but the maintenance behind it as well! Museum recently expanded. 

Open on Saturday mornings 9am to Noon only.

This railroad museum features operating maintenance (track crew cars) train; historic baggage, box and caboose cars; heated and a/c exhibit buildings with displays and operating model RR layouts in O and HO scales. No charge but as a 591 (c)3 not for profit entirely volunteer run and funded donations accepted and appreciated. Features exhibit is the maintenance train of open air wagons that visitors ride on a 3/4 mile excursion along Deep Run Spur. This provides a hands on glimpse into the way track maintenance workers went from their facilities to the area of tracks they had to repair. Operates in fair weather only when temps are above 40 degrees. Rides subject to no notice cancellation due to equipment problems, crew and safety personnel availability and commercial rail operations on the spur. Family friendly environment. Dress for the weather.
