Our World Famous "Run-A-Locomotive" program allows you, our museum visitor, to rent a vintage diesel locomotive and operate it on the museum grounds, under the close supervision of your own private instructor. Relive a childhood fantasy! No experience required, just an adventurous mind. Income from locomotive rentals helps fund the museum and restoration of our historic equipment.
There is information about how YOU can operate a diesel locomotive on the society website, wplives.org, or speak with one of us in the Museum Store while you are at the museum!
