Summer Depot Hours

While Smokey’s Bar-B-Que is open seven days a week, the exhibits in the remainder of the depot are not.  This summer, you can see the exhibits on weekends.  We’re open Saturday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and on Sundays from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.  These hours are subject to change, depending on volunteer availability.


If you’d like to verify we’ll be open or if you’re traveling through the area and would like to request a special tour of the depot, contact us through our web site.  Please note that the phone number currently listed on our web site is now used by Smokey’s Bar-B-Que.  They probably won’t know if we’re are going to be open or not.


If you haven’t been to the depot in awhile, we’ve added a railway post office mail sorter and this handcrafted model of a Milwaukee Road bi-polar electric locomotive made mostly from wood.  We don’t know why the builder painted it green.  Maybe they liked green or made a guess based on a black and white photo?  We thank Tom Kermen for donating this interesting, well-crafted example of how the Milwaukee Road electrification has inspired model builders for nearly a century.

Please come for a visit!  Parking is FREE at the depot if you’re visiting the depot or the rail yard.  Trail users should park at the trailhead east of the depot and display a Discover Pass.
