Saturday, April 27th is another "Run Day" here at the railroad. If you're interested to learn more about us, it's a great day to visit! As we get towards summer, morning is the best time to be here.While you're here, we've also discovered an AMAZING U-Pick peach option less than 5 minutes away at Wheeler Farms. They're open 8-5 Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and the picking is EASY! $20 for THREE bags of peaches (cash, venmo, zelle). This is their first year of U-Pick, so they're ramping up operations, but the fruit is delicious! So come out for some train fun AND grab yourself some delicious peaches! Tell David the railroad people sent you!You can find their page here: www.facebook.com/share/WGKEagohLqLxQtF6/?mibextid=qi2Omg ... See MoreSee Less

Over the years this area had been neglected, but with Andrea's efforts it's looking fantastic! ... See MoreSee Less

It's always a welcome relief after the huge amount of traffic we get during every Year's Winter meet to have a couple calm and easy days of running trains for fun. We still had a steady stream of visitors both Saturday and Sunday, and train rides were available for all guests. ... See MoreSee Less
