Train Days The Gaithersburg Community Museum celebrates Gaithersburg’s long and storied history with the railroad during “Train Days” on Saturdays, March 25 and June 3, 2017, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Admission is free. Visitors are invited to view model train displays, explore a caboose and RDC rail car, visit the 1918 steam locomotive on display in the adjacent History Park, learn whistle signals, and participate in train-related activities. While there, discover hands-on learning centers and shop for train-related items in the Museum. With any luck visitors can also enjoy the sights and sounds of the actual CSX, Amtrak and MARC trains that frequently rumble past the Museum. Located in the restored 1884 B&O Railroad Station complex near the intersection of Summit and Diamond Avenues in Olde Towne, the Gaithersburg Community Museum features educational exhibits and programs designed to spark interest and imagination about our City’s history. Interactive displays currently include a bank, school room and general mercantile store. The Museum consists of the historic Freight House, History Park and the rolling stock. While the model trains will only be on display during “Train Days,” the Gaithersburg Community Museum is open to patrons Tuesday through Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with additional hours by appointment. Admission is free. Donations are gratefully accepted. For information contact the Gaithersburg Community Museum, or like us on Facebook here.
