Father’s Day Special


June 15th & 16th

First Class passengers can partake of complimentary appetizers on board our First Class Parlor Car, the Gertrude Emma, and all Dads enjoy a free cup of coffee & donut in Conway. All Valley Trains this weekend go to Conway with departures at 11:30, 1:30 and 3:30.

Once in Conway, about an hour will be allowed to enjoy activities, displays, and demonstrations there, including the following:

  • Barrel car and motorcar rides for the kids
  • Dads can test their skills at operating small construction equipment performing not so ordinary tasks. Dads’ operation of this equipment will be judged by how careful and accurate they can be in performing the tasks within the time allotted. A winner will be announced on the train back to Conway with a special trophy to be presented back at the station.
  • Tours of our 1921 Steam engine #7470, plus our diesel engine #1751 and a caboose
  • Spiking demos
  • Display of hi-rail truck and historic Maintenance of Way equipment
  • Vintage vehicles’ display with costumed attendants

    This is a fun event the whole family will enjoy!
