We are pleased to announce that tickets to Railroad Days 2012 (Saturday, September 22 and Sunday, September 23) are now available ONLINE.

Follow the "Buy Tickets" link at to buy tickets. Prices are $18 for adults and $10 for children ages 2 through 12. (Children under 2 are free.) Railroad Days continues to be a flat ticket price to enter the Museum's gate, and your ticket allows UNLIMITED train riding on the day of your visit.

For several years, we have sold tickets online for selected events like Polar Express, Fireworks Train, and Throttle Time. However, the addition of Railroad Days to the events available for online ticket purchase is one of the early steps toward online ticket sales for ALL events at the Museum.

Once this transition is complete, our intention is for all train rides to be available for purchase online, whether it be a special event like Railroad Days or an ordinary weekend train ride.

We know that for events with limited seating, the option of purchasing tickets online in advance will be popular, particularly for our guests who come from far away to enjoy and support the Museum. In the near future, we will be adding online sales for Ghost Train -- watch this space for the announcement within the next couple weeks.

We will continue to accommodate walk-up ticket sales for most events, but we expect an increasing number of our guests to take advantage of the new ability to buy online WITH NO ADDITIONAL FEES!

Again, visit for details. We hope to see you on the train soon!

Currently packing everything from The Polar Express back into the boxcars as we prepare for winter! Projects this winter will include work on 401, the IC diner, our new car shed, and many others.
