EVERY SATURDAY MORNING  TRAIN RIDE – EXCURSION

Ride the rails along Historic Deep Run Creek in Spotsylvania Co. on open rail maintenance cars and experience how the railroad workers of the mid 20th century rode to their worksites.  Every Saturday 9AM to Noonweather and conditions permitting.  To ensure you get aboard the last train run, please be at the museum by 10:30AM.  We attempt to board all parties on a first come basis but boarding is conducted on the platform by our station conductor and train crew so first come first aboard may not always occur.  All children under 12 or those needing intensive supervision must be accompanied by a responsible adult and must be seated together. This means 4 adults or 2 adults and 3 small children can be seated together.
