September 30 & October 1, 2023
Explore the Interiors of Mid-Continent Railway Museum’s Finest Restorations
Mid-Continent Railway Museum has a nationally-renowned, award-winning wooden car restoration program. While all museum visitors can see the beautiful restorations from the Coach Shed viewing platforms alongside the cars, much of the fine craftsmanship can only be appreciated from within the railcars. For one weekend only, September 30 & October 1, 2023, museum visitors will have an opportunity to do just that.
Visitors will be welcomed beyond normally locked doors and get inside four of Mid-Continent’s exquisitely restored wooden passenger cars. Knowledgeable restoration volunteers will be on hand inside the cars to give life to the cars’ history and share details of the restoration process. Visitors can view inside the cars at any time throughout the day and proceed through them at their own pace. After exploring and learning about the finished products of Mid-Continent’s restoration efforts, visitors can tour the Museum’s Car Shop to see where the restoration work is carried out by Mid-Continent’s skilled volunteers.
