The weekend of August 18th – 20th will be a busy time for the Steam Railroading Institute
as we kick off the 2017 operating season with Pere Marquette 1225!


The world famous steam locomotive and additional rolling stock are currently receiving a variety
of repairs and upgrades to prepare them for both 2017 and beyond.

The busy weekend will begin on Friday, August 18th with 1225 steamed up on the SRI property in Owosso. Guests will have the opportunity of a life time to blow the whistle, open the throttle and operate the 75-year-old giant as part of our Hand on the Throttle session! Throughout the day, each session will be for 30 minutes at $500.

The recently renovated museum and backshop will still be open to the public that day from
10am to 4pm for regular tours and visits.


We’re also excited to host another Hand on the Throttle experience with 1225 on October 29th!

Ticket-holders will have the opportunity of a lifetime to blow the whistle, open the throttle and operate the 75-year-old giant on the SRI property in Owosso. Throughout the day, each session will be for 30 minutes at $500.

 

Both the museum and backshop will also be open to the public that day from 10am to 4pm for tours and visits.
