    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.

    The Railroad Museum in Sioux City is offering a new Ride the Rails Program that can not only provide you with a ride in the cab of our 1943 General Electric 45 ton switcher locomotive, but it could land you in the engineers seat with you actually operating the locomotive yourself. This is a rare opportunity for rail fans and visitors alike to actually drive a diesel locomotive.

    During each 2 hour long session the participants will be given 1 hour of basic instruction by our trained engineers while looking over the locomotive and learning how it works. Then it’s time to climb into the engineer’s seat and take the locomotive for a spin for another hour while your instructor watches over your shoulder ensuring safety and proper operation are always adhered to. In addition, each engineer participant will also receive an engineer’s cap and a certificate of accomplishment to serve as reminder of this unique experience that can be shared with friends and family for years to come.

    Up to four people may share each of the hour long time slots. In order to operate the locomotive you must be 18 years old or older, however, any people younger may ride along with an adult.

    The cost of this unique experience is $50 per engineer and $10 per passenger. This cost will help cover fuel and train crew costs. The program will run from 10 AM through 3 PM.

    Reservations are required in advance and are on a first come first serve basis. The locomotive will continue to operate unless severe weather approaches.

    Please contact the Railroad Museum, Sioux City at (712) 233-6996 to make your reservation or for answers to any additional questions that you may have.

Then it’s time to climb into the engineer’s seat and take the locomotive for a spin for another hour while your instructor watches over your shoulder ensuring safety and proper operation are always adhered to. In addition, each engineer participant will also receive an engineer’s cap and a certificate of accomplishment to serve as reminder of this unique experience that can be shared with friends and family for years to come.

    Up to four people may share each of the hour long time slots. In order to operate the locomotive you must be 18 years old or older, however, any people younger may ride along with an adult.

    The cost of this unique experience is $50 per engineer and $10 per passenger. This cost will help cover fuel and train crew costs. The program will run from 10 AM through 3 PM.

    Reservations are required in advance and are on a first come first serve basis. The locomotive will continue to operate unless severe weather approaches.

    Please contact the Railroad Museum, Sioux City at (712) 233-6996 to make your reservation or for answers to any additional questions that you may have.

    The Railroad Museum in Sioux City is offering a new Ride the Rails Program that can not only provide you with a ride in the cab of our 1943 General Electric 45 ton switcher locomotive, but it could land you in the engineers seat with you actually operating the locomotive yourself. This is a rare opportunity for rail fans and visitors alike to actually drive a diesel locomotive.

    During each 2 hour long session the participants will be given 1 hour of basic instruction by our trained engineers while looking over the locomotive and learning how it works. Then it’s time to climb into the engineer’s seat and take the locomotive for a spin for another hour while your instructor watches over your shoulder ensuring safety and proper operation are always adhered to. In addition, each engineer participant will also receive an engineer’s cap and a certificate of accomplishment to serve as reminder of this unique experience that can be shared with friends and family for years to come.

    Up to four people may share each of the hour long time slots. In order to operate the locomotive you must be 18 years old or older, however, any people younger may ride along with an adult.

    The cost of this unique experience is $50 per engineer and $10 per passenger. This cost will help cover fuel and train crew costs. The program will run from 10 AM through 3 PM.

    Come see Santa at the roundhouse! Santa will arrive by caboose at 12:30 and leave at 3:45. Trains and Christmas are a natural holiday coupling. Bring out the kids to see and talk to Santa be sure to bring your cameras to get your pictures taken.  If you dress warm you can also venture out on the railroad version of a scenic winter sleigh ride by taking stroll through the complex on the museum's motor car. There will be plenty of other things families can enjoy and do together during the event also. Several different games and activities will be going on throughout the day. HOT food, beverages, and our fantastic Volunteer Bake Sale will also be available for an additional fee. This event is a great way for everyone to kick-off their holiday season!
