Railfans Weekend

Train lovers, come celebrate our famous Huckleberry Railroad and trains of all sizes and shapes on Saturday and Sunday August 5 and 6!

This special weekend is dedicated to you, and we’re pulling out all the stops. We’re opening our train shop for the weekend so you can see the tools and equipment used for repairing and maintaining our vintage train cars and engines. There will be model trains in full operation, train demonstrations and a special 90-minute photo run on the Huckleberry Railroad with several stops along the way so you can step off to take photos and videos.

And there’s more!

– Visit the Train Store where you’ll find shelves and bins stocked with great train merchandise.
– Explore our Hobo Village and get a free piece of coal from Engine # 464 while supplies last.
– Tour our historic homes and trades buildings that date back to the days when trains crisscrossed this country and were the primary source of long-distance transportation.

This annual event is co-sponsored by the Mid-Michigan Railway Historical Society and highlights the valuable contributions that railroads have made in the expansion and development of the United States.

The Village is open from 10 am to 5 pm both days so come early and plan to spend the day! Bring a picnic or enjoy lunch and snacks at our casual dining options right in the Village.

Because this is a very popular weekend, we recommend you purchase your tickets in advance.
