Mid-Continent 60th anniversary
You're invited! Come help us celebrate 60 years of sharing railroad history! On May 26, 1963, Mid-Continent welcomed visitors for the first train ride departing North Freedom. Now, 60 years later, we invite you to participate in a day of special train rides and activities.
For this special event, you get TWO train rides for the price of one! The two trains in operation during the event are called the Lackawanna Train and the Copper Range Train, named after the railroad the passenger cars came from.
Throughout the day, tours will be offered through the museum’s First Class cars used for dining trains
Cookies and refreshments will be available in the (stationary) First Class cars
Mid-Continent’s Restoration Department will be holding a Volunteer Open House in the Car Shop throughout the day. Come meet the team and learn more about getting involved in Mid-Continent’s railcar restorations.
Volunteers will be present across the property so be sure to stop and ask questions!
