Live Steamers at the Railroad

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.

Steamers will be operating Saturdays and Sundays all month in December. Times are during regular operating hours, from 10am to 4pm.
