BLOWING ROCK – Tweetsie Railroad honors its historic past today and Sunday as it hosts the fourth annual Railfan Weekend.

Railfans will have an up-close opportunity to see how Tweetsie maintains and operates its historic steam locomotives. Engine #190 will bare her original 1943 U.S. Army lettering and her original “Yukon” whistle as she hauls passengers aboard the 1870s vintage coach on non-stop trips around the mountain. This exclusive trip will run all day Saturday and Sunday afternoon while Tweetsie’s original locomotive #12 pulls a separate train.
