Since 2005, we've worked on restoring multiple pieces of former Maintenance of Way equipment from different railroads. Some of the pieces include a former RF&P motorcar, a smaller C&O motor car, and a couple of old B&O passenger cars among others. This has since become the staple of the museum, providing visitors a small glimpse into what it was like 50-60 years ago working for the railroad.
We tend to only run during fair weather, however we have gone out upon special request in the snow, the below freezing temperatures, and occasionally rain. That really gives our visitors the experience on those not so friendly days of working!
While we certainly wish we had more track to run on, the approximately 2 mile round trip is a good length for a 10mph train. After departing the Deep Run station, you cross Mills Drive, and then Route 2/17 before hitting the woods along side Deep Run. Be on the lookout for wildlife, as we often see deer, groundhogs, and even the occasional snake! After a nice ride through the woods, you arrive at the former RF&P mainline, where we often see a passing freight or passenger train roll by at 50-60mph.
