Live Steamers

Just to the South of the train platform are the FNSR "Live Steamers." This is a 7.5" gauge 1.5" scale operating railroad. It's called "live steamers" because they operate real steam engines - not models - at a scale of 1½" equals 1 foot on a standard gauge train.

They have over 2000 feet of track laid, with more coming. Free rides are provided on public "run" days, which are currently the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month (except January, July & August). Some days diesel replicas are substituted for the steam engines.
