Train Festival in Owosso, MI

Posted: March 15, 2009 in Festivals

This just looks like way too much fun to leave off this website…


7 Steam Locomotives to be Operating at Festival plus HUGE Model Train Layouts, a Miniature Railroad and More.

Coming July 24-26, 2009, the sounds of steam whistles, the clickety-clack of steel wheels on rails, the smell of coal smoke and excitement of children of all ages will take over the Steam Railroading Institute in Owosso, Michigan. This quaint American Town is located in the central region of Michigan just outside of Lansing. All the charm of Owosso will welcome tens of thousands of visitors from all over North America and other regions of the world to TrainFestival 2009. The theme of the weekend will be Trains, Trains, Trains!

I’m creating a slight breach of etiquette here by featuring some photos taken in Florida at a Live Steam event. The photos were taken by one of our members at Triad Live Steamers.

The pictures were so amazing I had to feature them. Some of these engines are just absolutely beautiful.
