Current Activities -  2022

Ardenwood Farm Regional Preserve is open for the season and starting on April 1st we are operating trains behind our Plymouth Switcher 'Katie' pulling  excursion cars WSLCo 5 and WSLCo 318, and our historic picnic car NS 1725.

A lot of work has already been completed this Spring:
AND we still have a lot of work going on--


2022 Operations are complete. The train carried 65,000 passenger trips in 2022. 2023 Operations start March 30, 2023 -- Passenger trains will run on Thursdays, Fridays, Sundays, and on special event days.


The current car in active restoration is caboose NWP 6101.




Next steps on this car include installing windows, doors, repairing the roof, installing the airbrakes, flooring the car, rebuilding the end platforms and steps, adding couplers, installing iron railings, ladders, and grab bars, and of course lettering the car as it was in 1910.
