Motor Car Rides

Ride the rails on a motor car with an experienced maintenance of way crew member!

Enjoy this 45 minute motor car journey where you experience what it was like for maintenance crews to ride the rails. 

A motor car, also known as a speeder was a maintenance of way vehicle (MOW) for railroads. From the motor car and open observation cart, you will get up close and personal with the railroad.

There will be great opportunities for photographs.
