Tracks to the Past


Take a trip back in time at this event sponsored by Northwest Ohio Railroad Preservation. On Saturday morning, it’s time to explore. In addition to all sorts of trains—from Lionel to quarter-scale to full-size—you can watch a blacksmith at work, see wood carvers and rope makers, pet miniature horses, and kids can play in a giant sandbox. The highlight: riding the quarter scale live steam and diesel trains for a $1 additional charge (rides are not included in the admission fee). Be forewarned: your train ride might be interrupted by a Civil War re-enactor looking for deserters. Kids can test their strength and stamina at a kiddie tractor pull on Sunday at 1pm. Be sure to get details on the pumpkin train rides that begin in late September.

Saturday and Sunday admission: $2/1 adults/children, train rides $1 additional
Saturday, September 7, 9am to dark; Sunday, September 8, 10am-5pm.
