The popular Railroad Rendezvous event returns to the Southern Museum of Civil War & Locomotive History on Saturday, July 20. Activities celebrating railroads and transportation include an antique car display, blacksmithing, ham radio and telegraph demonstrations, a remote-controlled airplane simulator and an interactive model train display. A children's area will highlight railroad jobs with interactive displays. The highlight is the rare opportunity to step aboard the General locomotive, famous for the Civil War’s Great Locomotive Chase of 1862, for $5 per person (free for children two and under), with proceeds benefiting the Kennesaw Museum Foundation. All other activities are included with regular admission: $10 for adults, $8 for seniors, and $5 for children.
