Steamtown is no small tourist train operation. This is a National Historic Site operated by the National Park Service and features an operating roundhouse, turntable and mainline. The Grand Opening featured steamers big and small, including China-built NYS&W 2-8-2 #142, Milwaukee Road 4-8-4 #261, Canadian pacific 4-6-2 #2317, RBM&N 4-6-2 #425 and Shay #8 from the Lowville and Beaver River.
Diesels, the ribbon cutting, a steam "parade" and long train on the main take us to 100 minutes of action! Stereo sound!
