Celebrate the Return of Steam and the
Class J 611 to the New River Valley
Among Steam Engines, the 611 (J Series) is Legendary. Now is
your chance to experience the 611. Mark your calendar and bring
your youngest rail fans down to Cambria to watch one of the
greatest steam engines ever. It is a sight to see! Let's give
the old girl a real "welcome home."
The folks in Roanoke are offering 3
round-trip excursions from Roanoke to Walton
Junction (Radford) on July 3, 4, and 5. Tickets go on sale on
May 6th, so do not wait to get your ticket.
This year's summer
season starts on June 2nd. Rather than celebrating a theme
this year, we are celebrating a medium...paper and its variants. We'll
spend the summer exploring form and design and color, from building
dollhouses and castles to creating machines, and a whole lot inbetween.
The morning sessions are designed for children ages 5 to 8 and
the afternoon classes are for those 9 and older. Check out the calendar
and the summer class list. Registration
information should be available by May 10th.
