Steam in the Valley returns on September 3rd, 10th-12th, and 17th-19th. This is a limited opportunity to ride the train while being powered by a historical steam locomotive and trips include a photo runby.
Departures for this 2-and-a-half hour excursion take place from Rockside Station on Saturdays at 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. and Akron Northside Station on Sundays at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Each ride includes the opportunity to deboard the train for a special photo opportunity with two run-bys. A special nighttime ride will take place on Saturday, September 11 from Rockside Station at 6:30 p.m.
Join us for an exclusive nighttime photo session excursion on Friday, September 3th and Saturday, September 18th. The train will depart from Rockside Station at 7:30 p.m. and take passengers on a three-and-a-half-hour round trip. Upon deboarding halfway through the trip, the engine will be stationary; and the area will have special lighting, so ticketed passengers have optimal shooting conditions for a rare nighttime photo of No. 765.
