Open House at the Roundhouse

Final "Open House at the Roundhouse"

for 2007!

The gates of our home, Cleveland's former "B&O Roundhouse," will open for one last time this year on Sunday, November 25 from noon until 4:00 p.m.

The Open House will featured guided tours of the site every half hour as well as the opportunty to climb on board some of our vintage equipment. There'll be stories to hear; visions to imagine; and the chance to learn just how we plan to turn a now-condemned building into a fully interactive railroad history museum. And (if the 123 fires up), we'll be offering short train rides in one of our vintage Pullman coaches!

Visitors of all ages are welcome, but children must be supervised at all times. We also ask that everyone dress appropriately, including heavy shoes or boots, as the site is still in rough condition. Lastly, please be aware that neither the site nor our equipment are ADA-accessible.

A donation of $5 per adult, $3 per child (12 and under) is suggested. All proceeds will go directly to Roundhouse restoration efforts.

So work off the turkey and pumpkin pie leftovers by spending the afternoon with us! It'll be a great walk, a great ride, and a great way to see the future of our region's railroad history!
