Railroad Rendezvous returns to the Southern Museum on Saturday, July 23. A variety of activities celebrating the railroad and other industrial enterprises are taking place throughout the day.
The highlight of the event is a tractor show on the museum’s front lawn, featuring a 1917 Rumley steam tractor that will be fired up and blowing its whistle. A blacksmithing demonstration is also taking place outside. A large interactive model train layout and various remote control vehicles will be on display inside the museum, alongside historic demonstrations, such as chair caning, a vintage printing press, leather stamping, and quilting. In addition, a railroad silent film festival is scheduled and arts and crafts will be available for children. Railroad Rendezvous also offers the rare opportunity to step aboard the General and look inside the cab.
Join us for a full day of family-friendly fun. Thank you to our partners: Gordon Antique Engine & Tractor Club, Goat N Hammer, Atlantic Coast S Gaugers, Cobb County Radio Control Club, Acorn Workshop, Red Onion Press, Lee McKewen, and the Chattahoochee Evening Stars Quilt Guild.
