We at the Steam Railroading Institute wish to send our condolences to both family and friends of Jerry Joe Jacobson, and to the entire Age of Steam Roundhouse family. When it came to the effort of railway preservation, most notably steam, Jerry was a true champion. A champion who will be greatly missed…

Although one of many small towns and villages of Shiawassee County, Owosso holds a variety of unique treasures. Why not discover them in style when you join us on the Curwood Highlander, pulled by the world-famous steam locomotive Pere Marquette 1225! Depart Alma on October 28th at 10:00 am for an all-day, round trip, excursion through the Shiawassee countryside for a VIP visit to Owosso. Passengers will enjoy a journey back in time while riding in one of SRI's vintage coaches or restored cabooses.

Once arriving at the Steam Railroading Institute, passengers can tour the recently renovated museum and backshop, ride the 7 ½” gauge railroad, and even observe the 1225 being both turned and serviced for the return trip in the afternoon! Downtown Owosso merchants will be rolling out the red carpet to welcome passengers from the train. We invite you to take a tour and see what this unique town has to offer; from exploring the local businesses and restaurants, to visiting James Oliver Curwood’s famous castle! Information on activities and highlighted destinations will be provided aboard the train southbound to Owosso.

Tickets:
CABOOSE CLASS - SOLD OUT
COACH CLASS - $99*
*plus processing fee

Boarding Location: 207 Prospect Avenue, Alma, MI 48801

The return trip is scheduled to arrive back in Alma at approximately 7:00 pm.

Purchase your tickets now at www.michigansteamtrain.com or by calling (989) 399-7589 and get on-board the Curwood Highlander! #1225at75
