All Aboard for National Train Day: Saturday, May 8, 2010
The three rail museums in Virginia’s Rail Heritage Region are teaming up on May 8, 2010 to provide special National Train Day activities for rail fans of all ages. Visit the C&O Railway Heritage Center in Clifton Forge and the O. Winston Link Museum and the Virginia Museum of Transportation in Roanoke for a complete rail experience. In addition to many special exhibits and activities, visit all three on National Train Day and save $7.00 over individual museum admission. A joint ticket for the day is just $12 for a very full day of rail-related fun!
As part of the collaboration and to provide a truly unique experience for rail fans, the Virginia Museum of Transportation is loaning perhaps its most prized exhibit—the Norfolk & Western Class J 611 steam locomotive—to the O. Winston Link Museum to serve as the centerpiece of the Link Museum’s celebration. For the first time in several years, the 611 will be back on mainline tracks, being moved by Norfolk Southern Corporation to the O. Winston Link Museum on Friday May 7 and back to the Virginia Museum of Transportation on Sunday May 9.
