Our hours of operation are from 1 to 5 pm Memorial Day through Labor Day. We have several displays and photos from all the railroads that served North Dakota. We have several pieces of railroad freight equipment. We also have a few signal polls for block signals and station signals. We have an ice refrigerator car display that shows how the cars were iced on the inside and it also has several displays of track tools used by the section crews. In the main building there is a small library and several photograph displays. We do have a small store to get books and shirts and coffee mugs and several other items. We invite you to come and visit us often as we are continually updating the displays. Three times a season the Sky Line Railway comes down and gives rides to the public behind a miniature steam train. These dates will be posted in the comments section on the wall here. We hope you will come and check us out!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!
