Ohio Steam Train Trail
Think Ohio and the Steam Train Trail
Trains, trains and more trains! The Ohio Steam Train Trail takes you on an adventure like no other. This three stop adventure highlights the Ernest Warther Museum and Gardens, Age of Steam Roundhouse, and the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum.
You will be captivated by the 64 working models of steam trains carved by the world’s master carver Earnest “Mooney” Warther at the Warther Museum and Gardens in Dover. The Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek houses the worlds largest privately owned collection of steam engines. You will be immersed in trains during your visit at the Age of Steam Roundhouse which consists of storage tracks, a store house, coal dock, wood water tank, ash pit, back shop and the jewel of the site, a complete, working, 18-stall, brick roundhouse surrounding a 115-foot turntable and turntable pit.
Your last stop on the trail will be as a passenger on an actual train chugging through the scenic Ohio Appalachian country side during the Falladay train rides scheduled for October 12 and 13 or October 19 and 20. The Dennison Railroad Depot Museum is housed in Dennison, Ohio’s 1873 Pennsylvania Railroad Station – once located as the water stop halfway between Pittsburgh, PA and Columbus, OH—and now an National Historic Landmark. The Depot is the most significant remaining WWII canteens having served 1.3 million solders during WWII so not only will your Falliday Train ride be memorable, your visit through the museum will be, too.
Dennison Railroad Depot Museum
History buffs can venture back in time with a tour of the Dennison Railroad Depot Museum. This National Historic Landmark is the nation’s most significant remaining example of a railroad canteen still reflecting its WWII heritage. After, climb aboard for our fall excursion train ride — it’s one of the best ways to experience our changing of the seasons!
Age of Steam Roundhouse Museum
Touch the hard metal of a 72-ton locomotive while you tour the 18 bay roundhouse at the Age of Steam Roundhouse Museum. The museum also includes a 115-foot turntable and turntable pit along with the brick structure — the first full-sized working roundhouse built in the US since 1951.
Ernest Warther Museum and Gardens
See the works of Ernest “Mooney” Warther who carved 64 working trains from ebony and ivory. The Warther Museum will tell you the story how each carving was made to scale and each includes thousands of pieces — and if you ask, they may even show you the locomotive with the ‘secret’ compartment.
