The Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History will host its popular “Trains, Trains, Trains” event on Jan. 25.

The fourth annual family-friendly event will be held from 9:30 a.m. until 4 p.m. on Saturday, Jan. 25 and will feature crafts, vendors and several operating model train layouts. The daylong event will also include interactive programs including a train-themed story time, railroad music and vendors selling train-related items.

“Our annual ‘Trains, Trains, Trains’ event has established itself as one of the Museum’s most popular events,” said Dr. Richard Banz, the Museum’s executive director. “This event attracts die-hard railroad enthusiasts, casual railfans and families who are interested in trains – both life-sized and model versions.”

In addition to the day’s special events, visitors have an opportunity to explore the Museum’s permanent exhibits to learn about the Great Locomotive Chase, one of the Civil War’s most thrilling episodes. The Museum also includes a full-scale replica of The Glover Machine Works, a locomotive factory in nearby Marietta that helped rebuild the South after the war.

Museum admission is $7.50 for adults, $6.50 for seniors, $5.50 for children ages 4-12 and free for children three and under as well as Museum members; coupons and discounts will not be accepted on the day of the event. The Museum is located at 2829 Cherokee Street in downtown Kennesaw (exit 273 on Interstate 75).
