SPENCER, N.C. (AP) — The N.C. Transportation Museum continues to celebrate its Family Rail Days Festival with rides of various sorts, including passenger train and caboose rides.
The two-day festival at the museum in Spencer that celebrates the golden age of railroads. It began Saturday and ends Sunday.
The festival features historic locomotives and rail cars displayed alongside modern rail equipment. It also includes model train layouts.
General admission tickets cost $12.
The museum is located on the site of what was once Southern Railway Co.'s largest steam locomotive servicing facility. Southern Railway owner J.P. Morgan chose the site because of its location midway between the railroad's major terminal points of Washington, D.C., and Atlanta.
