Steam Over Spencer:

A Live Steam Model Train Event

March 2-4, 2023
9 a.m. – 5 p.m.

Join us March 2-4 for “Steam Over Spencer: A Live Steam Model Train Event.” The North Carolina Transportation Museum’s Back Shop will be home to several large operating model train layouts featuring scale model locomotives that are powered by live steam!

Locomotives and railroad cars in a variety of scales will be featured during this event, which is included in regular museum admission pricing. These locomotives produce their own power from a variety of fuel sources rather than being powered by an electric current through the track, making them different from conventional electric trains. Owners of these fascinating models are expected to come from across the country to share their detailed collections with other hobbyists and museum visitors.

Kids and adults alike will enjoy watching these model trains in action. While you’re here, be sure to check out the museum’s full sized steam locomotives on display in the Bob Julian Roundhouse, ride the museum’s train (Saturday only), and tour the Museum That Moves You!
