Railroad Days in April

April 19, 2015

Railroad Museum LogoJoin the Las Cruces Railroad Museum for their sixth annual Railroad Days, April 24 & 25, 2015 (10-4 pm each day). All festivities celebrate Las Cruces’ railroading past, present, and future. Throughout the two-day event, the Dona Ana Modular Railroad Club will have their model train layouts running and staff will be on hand to answer questions relating to railroading’s rich history.

The Centennial Caboose will be on display for viewing as restoration efforts continue on this historic piece of rolling stock. In addition to the caboose, the Burlington Northern Santa Fe Railroad will be bringing equipment that will be available for viewing (no rides) on Saturday. Inside the museum, we will have Harvey Girl reenactors from the Railroad and Transportation Museum of El Paso, and the Deming, Truth or Consequences and Columbus museums will also have booths set up.

Prior to Saturday’s big events; Friday, April 24, is Students’ Day with special tours by appointment for groups and activities for the kids throughout the day.

The Museum is regularly open Thursday, Friday, and Saturday from 9 am to 4:30 pm. Event is free and open to the public. The Railroad Museum is located at 351 N. Mesilla Street (at Las Cruces Ave.). For information, please see http://museums.las-cruces.org or call 575-647-4480.
