All Board, it’s time for the 12th Annual Randolph Railroad Days. It takes place this weekend, March 25-26 at the Randolph High School. Randolph is located just 20 minutes south of the twin cities and 45 minutes north of Rochester. Each year the Randolph Railroad Days gets bigger and better, there’s sure to be something for everyone. Hours are Saturday 9-3 and Sunday 10-2. Admission is $6 for adults and children 10 and under are free.
Joining us will be “Cannonball” Paul! (America’s Premier Old-Fashioned Railroad Musician) and Bookworm Bonnie (International Queen of the Hobos 2013-14). Cannonball Paul will be doing shows but also will be serenading throughout both days of the train show. Bookworm Bonnie will be doing railroad folklore presentations both days as well.
And of course once again we will have the CHOO CHOO BOB TV show’s Engineer Paul! He will entertain families with sing-a-longs and story telling. He will also be doing performances on both Saturday and Sunday.
Remember at the Randolph school we have 2 gymnasiums (and more in the hallways) of Operating Layouts and our Swap Meet. Also be sure to check out our and Museum and its railroad artifacts. The School AND our Museum are both handicapped accessible.
There will also be railroad slide shows and presentations on both Saturday and Sunday.
There were to be train rides this year. But unfortunately the local railroad now finds it has limited resources the day of this year’s Randolph Railroad Days. The railroad is however optimistic that they may be able to do rides later this year. Hopefully better than they originally had planned! We’ll keep you posted.
In any case an Engine and Caboose WILL be at this year’s show to explore.
Admission is $6 for adults and children 10 and under are free.
