- 611 Cab Tour Ages 5+
The story of the steam locomotive is one of innovation, revolution, and evolution. The “iron horse” evolved over the course of more than a century before being dethroned by diesel locomotives during the middle of the 20th Century.
The 611 passenger steam locomotive remains the last existing example of the pinnacle of that evolution. Take this opportunity to climb aboard for a guided tour of the cab where the crew toils at the reins.
You’ll be in awe of the array of gauges, valves, and levers that the engineer and fireman must manipulate with great precision to get this powerhouse locomotive to perform at its best.
- Participants must be 5 years old or older. Ages 5 to 15 years old need to be accompanied by an adult.
- Access to the locomotive cab is via a stairway.
- Please allow 30 minutes to complete your experience.
Due to the historical nature of N&W No. 611 J, this experience is not handicap accessible nor conducive for those guests with mobility issues.
