Northwest Ohio Railroad Preservation, Inc. and Riverside Train are operated by an all-volunteer 501(C)(3) non-profit corporation dedicated to railroad preservation, promotion, and education.  Take a train ride powered by a restored quarter-scale, coal-burning, live-steam Engine 901 around a 1/2 mile of 15″ gauge track; only $1.00 per passenger.  Tours of a 1920s-era B&O caboose are the first Sunday of the month, April thru September. The railroad museum is nearing completion; in addition to railroad artifacts and memorabilia, it will include an HO model train layout and Lionel toy trains.  A conference room and/or kid’s birthday room are available for rent.  Outside static displays include a 1950s Plymouth switcher and a 19th-century wooden boxcar, both slated for future restoration.

Special events:  Flag City Train Show in the spring, Tracks To The Past in September, Pumpkin Train in October, Train of Terror & Haunted Engine House in October (special evening hours), and North Pole Express in December.  Call for details.
