Coconut Telegraph

SRQ DAILY SATURDAY PERSPECTIVES EDITION SATURDAY MAY 23, 2020

Train Rides are coming back at the Florida Railroad Museum. It has been a long two and half months since the museum closed its doors. The museum met with Manatee County and developed a plan for the railroad to once again begin offering train rides. Precautions will take place based on state, county and CDC guidelines, with extra cleaning between and during each trip, limited capacity and social distancing. Museum volunteers are all super excited to welcome guests back. Train rides will resume on Saturday June 6th and operate every Saturday and Sunday at 11am and 2pm. As with every summer, the museum will still be offering its Kids Ride Free all Summer special, with up to 3 free kids (under 12 years old) per adult ticket (adults are 12 years old and older). Beat the summertime/COVID-19 blues and come out and enjoy a SAFE and relaxing train ride. The train will feature two enclosed AC coaches and two open air coaches to best meet your needs. Guests are free to move about the train. Did you want to see Thomas the Tank Engine back in March? Well, the museum’s Model Railroad display car will also be open on weekends featuring Thomas and Friends.
In addition to general admission train rides, the museum will also be offering the following: Locomotive rental, drive a railroad diesel locomotive, caboose charters, have your own private car for your own private party, locomotive cab rides and ride shotgun with the engineer.
