Due to the current on-going health situation the Museum is operating at 50% capacity. A Mask is required for entry to the Museum. During your visit we ask that you wear a mask, and follow appropriate Social Distancing practices on-site. Our staff are taking extra measures to clean and sterilize high-traffic areas and we have installed sanitation stations throughout the grounds for your use.

We will be operating open-air coaches pulled by a vintage diesel locomotive on most operating days. A steam locomotive may be substituted on selected dates!

Mid-January through mid-May, we offer train rides every Saturday. Late May through mid-August, train rides are offered Thursday-Sunday. Saturday train rides then continue into late October, interrupted in September by three Day Out With Thomas event weekends. Train rides operate between the hours of 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., with half-hourly departures. The ride takes you on a loop around the Museum’s 15-acre Rail Yard, and lasts approximately 15 to 20 minutes.

Ride on-board a train in open-air rail cars pulled by a vintage Diesel Locomotive! Rides operate every 30 minutes from 10:00AM until 3:00PM. Train crew does take a lunch break at 12:30PM each day.

Note: Masks Required of all Guests until further notice. Drinking fountains not available
