It’s full steam ahead for this once a year special access weekend for railroad fans and history buffs! Events begin Saturday with a Step Back in Time Tour at 3:30. Then Presentations and book signing at 5:30 by authors Leonard Merritt and Alfred Mullett (yep, they wrote the books on the SVRR!) 7:00 Prime Rib dinner and lots of conversation. On Sunday, we head out to “the yard” in McEwen. Ride along on a the “season test run” at 10am to Sumpter where we’ll enjoy a private tour of the Gold Dredge State Park maybe have a bite and explore historic Sumpter. We’ll return by railroad at 1pm to “the barn” in McEwen for tour of the inside workshops where the all volunteer crew makes this railroad run–and generally get dirty and have fun ! $68 per person, $35 tax deductible, because that goes to the non profit org, plus you’ll recieve an annual membership as a Friend of the Sumpter Valley Railroad! ($33/person for Friends members) Kids under 16 can join the fun without membership (no host dinner), up to one per Adult.
