Kids love to encounter unique and exciting vehicles up close – who doesn’t!   If you have little ones who are mighty machine or train fans, mark your calendars. May, 27th from 10 am – 3 pm the Railway Museum and 18th St. Thomas Scouting are partnering to present a Touch a Truck, Touch a Train! event.

We are gathering a collection of cool vehicles – from trucks of all sizes to emergency vehicles, construction equipment to locomotives, tractors to trackmobiles…all at the Railway Museum. Then we will allow families to come and see them, touch them, sit in some, and have pictures taken.

Touch a Truck, Touch a Train! has other family-friendly activities including glitter and temporary tattoos, kids crafts, and more!

Special admission for the day is $5 per person.
