Break out your overalls and striped hats for another Train Day at Auburn Heights in Yorklyn on Sunday, May 6.
Take a ride on the 1/8-size Auburn Valley Railroad and experience the beauty of Auburn Heights as you circle through a tunnel, over a trestle bridge and past the 1897 Marshall mansion.
Explore exhibits and activities in the Marshall Steam Museum, sample free steam-popped popcorn, and tour the mansion as you help celebrate the love of trains
New this season, visit each month the changing exhibit, “Stories from Auburn Heights: Recollections of Tom Marshall,” which feature pictures, objects and personal stories from life at Auburn Heights, local history, the steam car hobby, and more, from the Weekly News newsletter written by founder Tom Marshall.

A visit from the Nordel Model Railroad Club with their electric train display
Learning about the jobs on the railroad and the special tools they used
Trying your hand at being a railroad fireman and shovel coal at the Little Tykes Tender
Build your own train out of recycled materials
All admission options include:
Rides on the Auburn Valley Railroad, the 1/8-size railroad that circles the property
