‘Winter Fever’ Train Rides for family fun

December 26-30
SPENCER — Special “Winter Fever Train Rides” are offered for families during the down-time between the Christmas and New Year’s festivities, Dec. 26-30. After the hustle and bustle of shopping, family gatherings and company parties, the week between the holidays provides time to get out of the house for some family fun.
The museum’s on-site 25-minute train ride provides views of the town of Spencer and the former Southern Railway repair facility, including the Roundhouse, Back Shop and the Master Mechanics Office.
The Bumper to Bumper exhibit has a unique display of classic and antique automobiles, including the Willys Knight, steam and electric powered cars from the innovation years of the auto industry, the 1940s era Chevy pick-up truck, Ford Model As and Ts and even a Ford Model R from 1907.
The Bob Julian Roundhouse, of course, is where the iron horses are kept. Steam and diesel locomotives and railroad passenger cars are housed in the 37 bay Roundhouse.
Also in the Roundhouse is a full size replica of the Wright Brothers “Wright Flyer” alongside other aviation exhibits.
Tickets for the museum’s “Winter Fever Train Rides” can be purchased at the Barber Junction Visitor’s Center at tat the N.C. Transportation Museum on each event day. Winter Fever Train Rides are offered Dec. 26-30. For times and ticket information call 704-636-2889 or visit www.nctrans.org
