THE 1ST ANNUAL LONG LEAF STEAM-UP EVENT SOUTHERN FOREST HERITAGE MUSEUM AND RESEARCH CENTER

EVENT DETAILS

A two-day fall event for our railroad fans of the South! The event will feature several “Gauge 1” live steam-powered locomotive models from the International Small Scale Steam-Up Company. They will have temporary tracks set up in the Lumber Storage sheds.

In addition, the much-anticipated news, the Fernwood, Columbia & Gulf M-4—affectionally called the “Doodlebug”—will be in operation! After being out of commission for repairs since May, the volunteers of the Red River & Gulf Railroad group will enthusiastically bring groups of people around the perimeter of the museum.
