The RS&N is pleased to announce our Fall Rail Ride schedule!! We had such a good response with our March ride that we decided to offer the chance to ride our line on 2 different days in October. The trips will run on Saturday,Oct. 6th and Saturday,Oct.20th,there will be 2 trips per day leaving from Red Springs,NC and traveling 13 miles north to Parkton,NC and the interchange with CSX's A-line.Trips will run at 10:00 AM and 2:00 PM and each trip will last about 3 hours. Tickets will cost $15.00 for adults and $10.00 for children 5-12.Tickets may be ordered by calling 910-285-6242 between 7:00 PM and 10:00 PM and may be paid with cash,check or money order,no credit cards please. Raindates will be the following Sundays of each weekend.Rest rooms will be available as well as food,drinks and souviners in Parkton as well as possible CSX photo opportunities. You will be riding on former railroad maintenance rider cars used to transport railroad maintenance workers up and down the railroad and we recommend a cushion or pillow to sit on.
The RS&N is a 501c3 non profit corporation and proceeds will be used for our continued preservation of the railroad as well as the continued education of rail safety and the history of railroads in Robeson County and the United States. Please come out and join us for a unique way to ride the rails and see the scenery and,if you are interested,we are always looking for new members to join the railroad and you do not need to own a motorcar to do so.

Hey Gang! There is still plenty of time to call for your tickets for this Saturday's rides or either ride on Oct. 20th! Come on out and ride railroad equipment that you probably never have before and see the sights from a completely different perspective. please call 910-285-6242 for tickets!
