This activity is very popular and sometimes books up well in advance of available days.
Reservations are required at least two weeks in advance with deposit via credit card. No refunds for no shows unless severe weather conditions (heavy rain, floods, high winds, snow). Locomotives and streetcars will usually run rain or sunshine.
The VC2 is only available the 3rd weekend of each month.
Diesel and Electric Cars are available Friday between 9am-4:30, or Saturdays/Sundays at 9am.
Two people may share a rental hour for the VC2, and up to four people may share a rental hour for other equipment.
Engineer Trainee minimum age is 18, however, 5 years and older may ride along with an adult. Train availability varies; please call the Museum Front Desk for details.
The safety of our staff, volunteers, and visitors is the Museum’s highest priority. In order to continue offering this unique experience SCRM has enacted the following safety protocols:
- Face masks must be worn throughout the duration of the experience.
- Only one person is allowed in the cab with engineer at a time (unless the trainee is a minor, in which case an adult must be present).
- Please review our most current COVID-19 guidelines HERE.
