The Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum Railroad Festival features telegraph school, train layouts, model train & historical train vendors, children’s activities, entertainment, speakers, workshops, demonstrations & delicious food. The Bradford Ohio Railroad Museum dedicates this festival to the preservation of Bradford & southwestern Ohio railroad heritage. The railroad was once a significant part of Bradford’s economy, employing many who manned the trains, worked in the switching yards and in the roundhouse where steam locomotives were kept and maintained between runs.
The museum has restored Bradford’s former Pennsylvania Railroad BF interlocking tower and opened a museum in the former bank building. The museum Gift Shoppe will be open and feature a number of train paraphernalia and Cat’s Meow figurines of historical train locations.
