Mid- Eastern Region NMRA 2018 Convention


Come take a ride on the Walkerville Southern Scenic Railroad on Saturday, October 6th, 2018.
     The Walkersville Southern is a small scenic railroad that runs between Walkersville and Frederick, Maryland over track that the Pennsylvania Railroad originally built in 1872. It is staffed by volunteers who have a love for railroads.
     The station where you will board the train was built at the turn of the 20th century, as was the tool house in the nearby yard. The railroad uses small diesels to pull an open flat car and restored P-54 passenger cars that were built in the 1920's. During the trip you will see a 100 year old lime kiln and travel on a high trestle over the Monocacy River.
     The train travels slow (~10 mph) so you will have plenty of time to take in the scenery and take pictures. The trip takes about an hour and ten minutes. As a added bonus, the Railroad will give the convention group a tour of the yard before the train ride begins. There are vintage freight cars and cabooses, and passenger cars in the process of being restored in the yard, along with the engine house.
