OUR 2018 CALENDAR HAS BEEN FINALIZED

Centerville and Southwestern

We invite you to join us for our first open house of the 2018 season on April 21st starting at 10 am. The Centerville and Southwestern miniature railroad will be running for the enjoyment of our guests and our museum and gift shop will also be open for your inspection.
The 2017 season was a rather disappointing one for us. We were forced to cancel our first open house after copious amounts of rain pounded the area for most of the day. Then, Ole Town Fest, which is traditionally a big event for us, was moved from Shappell Park to the riverfront negating our reason to open. Much to the chagrin to our members (and many of you too) we didn't get to shine the rails of the C&S till our August Open House. Fortunately, our October events and the Santa Train helped salvage the year.
After a winter of shingle ripping, power outage, Nor'easters, Alberta Clippers (and all those other meteorological gobbledygook terms for crappy weather), the spring is here. We're looking forward to warmer days and our 2018 season. We're happy to report that Old Town Fest has been moved back to Shappell Park and we are elated to have more dates on our schedule this year!
So please come and have some free family fun with us as time permits this season.

Lehigh and Hudson River Caboose #18

L&HR caboose #18 oruir to going into shop

We expect to unveil the restored Lehigh and Hudson River RR caboose # 18 this year. Work began on this vintage caboose in 2011 and was originally planned to be completed in 1 season. However once work began, the extent of how badly the wood had deteriorated became apparent. Unfortunately, most of the wood had to be replaced. Even as we speak, the caboose crew is working on the finishing touches of this project. So stay tuned, we expect to have more on the big reveal later this year!
