Linden Depot Officially Opens May 31

The Linden Depot Museum will open for the season on Friday, March 31. The museum will be open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. The admission price of $6 for adults and $1 each for children includes all museum attractions. This summer we will have two special events:

Sunday, June 25: From noon to 5 p.m., we will showcase our European HO model railroad attraction. The museum acquired a large donation of European HO model railroad equipment, including Marklin, Roco, Fleischmann, and others. Our board member, Greg Reynolds, a retired Rolls-Royce electrical engineer, has worked on this project for over 2 years to make the attraction an outstanding exhibit of European HO superb technology. This is a very unique display and well worth a visit to the museum.

Saturday, August 12: From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., we will host our 3rd Annual Midwest Railroad Fair. The fair will include railroad exhibitors, railroad vendors, food vendors, and much more. During the fair, we will run our 1837 Norris 4-2-0 steam engine. We will make three trips: 10:30 AM,  12:00 PM, and 2:30 PM. This is a chance of a lifetime to experience 1837 railroad transportation! The train fare is $25 per person, includes a gourmet dessert, drink, and a narrated trip. Each trip will accommodate eight persons.

Tickets are on sale now and are available at the museum or by calling 765-427-3630. The museum is located at 520 N. Main Street, Linden.
