The first 100 attendees to the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History’s Trains, Trains, Trains! event on Saturday will receive a free railroad-themed T-shirt.
The family friendly event will be held from 9:30 until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 19, and features operating model train layouts, railroad music and vendors selling a variety of train-related items.
In addition to the day’s special events, visitors have an opportunity to explore the museum’s permanent exhibits to learn about the Great Locomotive Chase, one of the Civil War’s most thrilling episodes. The museum also includes a full-scale replica of Glover Machine Works, a locomotive factory in nearby Marietta that helped rebuild the South after the war.
