Today at Railtown

A camera on the blink  has kept us from posting photos lately, but that doesn’t mean we’ve been idle!  The #3 crew is plugging along on the tender, to get it out of the shop, and continues to work on the levelling of the locomotive (with the addition of the spring rigging).  Meanwhile, other volunteers and paid staff have been busy in preparation for “Santa’s Express” which starts this weekend.  Only a few tickets left for the nighttime trains on Saturday the 28th, but Santa will also be around during the day on November 27, 28, & 29th, as well as December 19th & 20th.  Even if you can’t get a ticket for the night train, come down and see all of the lights!  And don’t forget, you can help support Railtown, and buy gifts for those on  your list. . . Railtown memberships, great book, Thomas the Tank Engine products, great videos filmed at Railtown, and more!
