There is lots to explore at Trainfest!
Climb inside one of our many cabooses, hop in a boxcar, roar ahead in our Diesel Locomotive or ‘cool down’ in our snowplow. Discover our latest exhibition, “Traveling through Time”: A vintage luggage display. All activities are included with admission!
Take a break from all the activities and purchase a delicious lunch from our BBQ, open 11am until 2pm.
