First of all,
the 1902 wooden passenger car is in its final stages of restoration.
The outside is complete except for the final paint. In side
we have the newly installed seats of the era 1902, with a
new hardwood floor. It still has to have the ceiling installed
and the wood engravings over the windows.
In the 1907 wooden
box car we have a beautiful display of HO wooden railroad
engines. These are all hand made and there are over 200 of
them. Also in the box car there is a 1900 restored buggy,
the kind that the people used to use to get to the RR Station
in 1895. We let the kids hop on it and give them a bounce
up and down to show how it felt when the roads were dirt.
The 1950 steam
engine has been restored to look like an 1895 steam engine.
Ringing its bell is a lot of fun when you are in the cab.
The bell is of course to get the cows off the track.
The 1950 caboose
is open and it is a lot of fun to see how the crew of the
train worked, ate and slept.
We have come
a long way since 1999 and we invite you to see where your
money has gone. We will have coffee and sodas for all, so
come and enjoy your Museum. We are located in the Drexel Lodge
