Railroad Days!  Every year I want to take my family.  Every year.  Have we gone yet?  No.  Considering that I have four kids who have always liked trains, the fact that we have not ever attended makes me sad.  Sadly, we again have plans this week-end that make it impossible for us to go again.  Sigh.  Even though we will not be attending, I hope that some of you can go.  Here are the details:

Thanks to the generous support from Union Pacific Corporation and a grant from the Iowa West Foundation, a family pass for Railroad Days is only $15! One $15 pass admits two adults and your dependent children or two grandparents and up to four grandchildren, for both days. A $5 pass is also available for one additional adult with purchase of a family pass. This includes transportation between locations and all the special activities that each location has to offer.

Purchase your tickets the day of the event at any of the participating venues.
  • Lauritzen Gardens
  • The Durham Museum
  • RailsWest Railroad Museum
  • Union Pacific Railroad Museum
  • Historic General Dodge House
