ASHLAND TRAIN DAY
Saturday, November 7, 2020
Ashland Train Day is a FREE event for the whole family.
Come visit us along the tracks for a street festival and railfan extravaganza!
RAILROAD HISTORY & LORE
Two museums, three storytellers, and a 12-stop scavenger hunt bring Virginia’s railroad history to life.
More than 18 fully-loaded CSX freight trains and Amtrak passenger trains will pass through the center of the event.
Model trains on display of every size and scale, including lego and racing trains. Plus vintage railroad equipment and a red caboose!
Gear heads of all ages will be amazed at the display of heavy equipment, fire truck and ambulance, dump trucks and tractors.
A world of fun with a bouncy house, obstacle course, and games.
LIVE MUSIC STAGE
Sponsored by CSX
Bluegrass, country, and old-time musicians take center stage.

More than 100 community volunteers make the event possible, along with first responders from Ashland, Hanover, Randolph-Macon College, and CSX.
CHILDREN’S TRAIN RIDES
Two kiddie trains invite families to tour the festivities. All aboard!
Even parking is part of the fun! Four vintage trolleys carry participants from satellite parking areas to the event.
