Weekend caboose train rides resume Memorial Day weekend. Come ride a vintage caboose at the museum or, for extra-fare, ride with the hoghead in the locomotive!

On Saturday, June 11, we will be having our Annual Membership Meeting and dinner, come meet your fellow railfans and get a chance to meet personally with the museum leadership. If you are not an FRRS member, now would be a wonderful time to join. You can join online, Membership Information.
