Shop Tour

We will see you next year!

Go behind the scenes with a guided tour of the railroad’s mechanical shop, where steam trains are built and refurbished! There are a limited number of tickets for this exclusive tour. We strongly recommend you purchase tickets ahead of time, as the tours often sell out.

Shop Tours in 2020 are offered on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays.

All tour ticket holders must sign a release which will be provided at the Station upon check-in. The release ensures that the tour participant acknowledges that he/she will be entering an area where railroad industrial activity is performed, including the use of heavy, moving machinery and other hazards associated with a railroad or industrial facility. Due to the nature of the facility, this tour is not accessible for those requiring a mobility device. The release holder agrees to assume all risk of illness or injury and hold the Rail Road harmless for any illness/injury that occurs while the holder is on the tour.

Closed-toe shoes are required. Persons wearing opened-toe shoes will not be permitted on the tour, with no option for refund. High heels are strongly discouraged. Photography and videography are both strictly prohibited.

Children under the age of 5 are not permitted on the Shop Tour. Ages 5 through 17 must be accompanied by an adult.
