Non-profit resurrection of a two-foot gauge railroad that first operated in 1879. On operating days, take a short ride through the woods behind a replica of Sandy River locomotive #4 hauling passengers in either an 1884 vintage coach and/or a caboose built in the 1980's. Ride includes a walking/talking tour of the site of the covered bridge and 4 stall roundhouse. The swaying of the passenger cars, clickety-clack of wheels, rumble of the locomotive and sound of the whistle are sure to bring back the past.
