The cost is $50 for a 10x10 space, this does NOT include a tent, tables or chairs. This is an excellent time to sell your equipment you no longer use, make some money for your group and increase exposure for your upcoming events.

Today we had to move 3 rail cars 6 feet! And we did it! A lot of old people muscle power and a couple of hand wenches. The Palm Leaf, by itself, weighs 182,000 lbs. None of us are spring chickens, so this was a big deal! You maybe wondering why we moved the cars 6 feet? We are getting ready to bring our display car in (yeah) and we have a check list of things that need to be done before it can come to its new home!

thanks to all who came out to the museum today! Yes it was a little cold but it was a good day. The guys continued working on their various projects and the visitors got to see first hand what it takes to restore the cars. We are working on the reference library in the Palm Leaf and also finding we have duplicates of books. So we are starting to sell items, one box at a time. Might be books or it might be model trains and track. A couple lucky visitors picked up some nice but old rail cars and rail sets. Keep following there is more stuff to sale, plus the Easter event is April 1st! No April’s fool

Laughed myself silly last night at the Museum's quarterly movie night. Abbott and Costello Meet the Keystone Cops. ESPEE steam action abounds in this 1954 flick. Did I say I laughed so hard it hurt?
