Railroad Days

Posted: Updated:

The hot weather today didn't stop a few hundred people from heading out to the North Dakota State Railroad Museum this afternoon.

It was the tenth annual Mandan railroad days. The president of the museum said it's not a fundraiser but just an event to get the whole community together. One of the sites to see was a portable bunk house, which a boy scout has been restoring as his eagle scout project. 


"We started last fall, so it's taken about a year, just about finished," says Casey Wieland, a member of Boy scout Troop 54. "We've has my friend he's helped out a lot, he's been my project manager, Elliot Tipke. We've had various boy scouts and their parents come out and help paint or nail boards. It's been pretty fun."

"It's just an event for the community," says ND Railroad Museum President, Bill Engelter. "Our admission has always been free but we accept donations and we have a store where people can buy railroad memorabilia and so forth."

The museum is open from 1 to 5 through September 2nd.
