Enjoy ‘Summer Steam Days’ at Savannah museum

A Savannah railroad museum is firing up a nearly century old steam locomotive this summer.

The Roundhouse Railroad Museum kicked off its Summer Steam Days on July 2. The celebration continues until July 24.

As part of Summer Steam Days, visitors to the museum can hop aboard a train pulled by a 1913 0-4-0T Alco locomotive for a guided train ride through the historical complex. In addition, the museum offers walking tours through the grounds.

The Roundhouse Railroad Museum is located in a former Central of Georgia Railway roundhouse.

In 1989, the Coastal Heritage Society took over management of the facility to preserve the shops for future generations. Today, the Roundhouse Railroad Museum is home to more than 40 pieces of railroad equipment, including locomotives and rolling stock.

Summer Steam Days continues on Tuesdays through Sundays through July 24. Train rides are scheduled for 11 a.m., 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m. Sunday train rides are scheduled for 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.
