The 16th annual Ashland Train Day, a railroad themed event for the whole family, is coming up on Saturday, November 3 from 10 am to 5 pm. Come visit us at the Ashland Train Station along the tracks for a day of fun and excitement. We have railroad music, songs and storytelling, miniature children's train rides, children's games and activities, lots and lots of model trains (Lego, wooden and electric) in over five locations, model train racing, memorabilia displays, a locomotive moon bounce, real antique railroad equipment, a real caboose, area railroad organizations, our Train Day mascots the Engineer Bears, Cinder and Tender, our CSX Stage sponsored by CSX Transportation, our premiere sponsor, the Metro Richmond Tourism Van, plus plenty of food vendors and much, much more !

We also have our real collection of Amtrak and freight trains right out front passing by all day. Make sure you wave to the engineers, they love the attention.

Please come dressed in your bib overalls, bandanna and engineer hat. We'll be in our best train attire as well.

Bring your camera. Photo opportunities are all day long and our mascots just love having their picture taken with the kids.

Free trolley shuttles are available from the Ashland-Junction Shopping Center and Saint Ann's Catholic Church all day. Parking is limited near the train station as N. and S. Railroad Ave. is closed for the day.

Best off all, Ashland Train Day is FREE !!!
