Field Trip: The Age of Steam Roundhouse - Part 3 of 3
Click on each image for a closer look!
We have reported on this exciting development before in Parts 1 and 2 of this field trip report. You actually can not make an actual field trip to the museum as it remains under development and is not open to the public. It is located in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
As reported earlier, the Age of Steam Roundhouse is being developed privately and will will seek to:
- Preserve the steam locomotives, historic diesels, passenger cars and other railroad relics in the collection of Jerry Joe Jacobson
- Construct a full-scale, operating and realistic roundhouse and back shop to overhaul, repair and maintain Jerry’s rolling stock
- Fire-up and operate the steam locomotives on non-passenger carrying freight trains
- Display and interpret this railroad heritage for the edification, enlightenment and entertainment of future generations of Americans.
