The City of Gaithersburg is hosting “Train Day” as the Community Museum celebrates the City’s long & storied history with the railroad that allows visitors to immerse themselves in everything trains. View large-scale steam locomotive model train displays exhibited by Local Locos Live Steamers, learn about the MARC & Brunswick line with the Maryland Transit Authority, and make a train craft. Explore a caboose, the RDC rail car, and the 1918 steam locomotive in the adjacent History Park. Discover hands-on learning centers& shop for train-related items in the Museum. With any luck visitors can also enjoy the sights & sounds of the actual CSX & Amtrak trains that frequently rumble by.
This event will take place on Saturday, May 7, 2022 from 11am until 3:30pm. This is a drop-in program for audiences of all ages. Admission is free, but a donation to help cover the cost of materials is appreciated. Please note children must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.
