    Admission: Normal Rates

    A new season is upon us and oh my, are we going to be busy. This will be the busiest and most exciting year in our history when it comes to building restoration. This year we are having new permeant bathrooms installed. Although they won’t be operational until we get water plumbed into the complex they will be ready to use as soon as the water is connected. We also have 4 buildings that will be undergoing restoration work this year; the Car Shops building, Engineers Tool Shed, Sand Drying House and the South End Water Closet. All of the construction is slated to be complete by Mid-October. Also, a new and very exciting addition that we have to show off is our new Grand Scale Train. Designed to operate on 15” wide tracks this 3” scale train will soon be providing transportation as a people mover around the museum complex. Fundraising is currently underway to purchase 1.5 miles of track, screws, bolts, ties and ballast so we can get started with laying the track to get this train running. The actual train will be on display in between Bay 2 & 3 of the roundhouse for you to see.

    Come explore some of the coolest big vehicles in the area. We will have fire trucks, ambulances, Police vehicles, construction equipment, Military vehicles and more. Sit in the seats and blow the horns or turn on the sirens. Climb into the cab of our steam locomotive Great Northern #1355, Old Ironhorse, and pretend you are the engineer or fireman and ring the bell. Come inside our 45 ton switcher diesel locomotive and feel it running underneath your feet, then ring the bell and blow the horn. Lots of great photo opportunities so bring the camera. This is a huge hit with kids of all ages.
