years rail line communities across the nation will celebrate our American Trains again in 2011.
Rail Line Communities will offer a wide selection of specialized activities, including live entertainment,
interactive educational exhibits, tours of notable private railroad cars and trains, train rides, food demonstrations,kids’ programs and much more entertainment.
