The Chesapeake & Ohio Historical Society Presents

Railway Heritage Festival & George Washington's Train Show

June 7th 10AM - 4PM & June 8th 12:00PM - 4PM

In the past we have hosted a traditional "railroad model show" in February and a "Heritage Day" in May. This year we have combined both. We feel that this new combined event will be even more attractive. Featuring:

• Interactive model layout
• Model, memorabilia, Railroad antique vendors
• Miniature Train Rides
• Hand Car Rides
• Great Food & Games
• Appearances from Thomas the Tank Mascot
• Steam Whistle Exhibit
• Free Railroad Antique Appraisals
• Book Signings

Historical events, and, of course, all our museum artifacts and equipment will be on display.

And so much more!
