SPEEDER RIDES 9 AM & 6 PM
Enjoy the thrill of riding a real motorized railcar. Railcars, or speeders as railroaders named them, are those little yellow or orange boxes with a putt-putt sound that you used to see on the railroad lines during the fifties and sixties. They transported the men and materials needed to repair the railroad tracks before the advent of the "hy-rail" truck. Come join in the fun!
Ride at either 9 am or 6 pm
Leave Perry Street Station and ride to Rynd Farm Station and return, a 27-mile round trip. Plan to arrive at least 45 minutes prior to pick up your tickets and to attend the safety course.
Tickets are $30 per person and reservations are required.
Closed toe shoes required - no flip-flops, sandals or crocs. No one under age 6 permitted.
