National Train Day @ the Minnesota Transportation Museum

  • Jackson Street Roundhouse 193 Pennsylvania Avenue East Saint Paul, MN, 55130 United States (map)

The Minnesota Transportation Museum is planning a day to explore train history throughout St. Paul, MN!  Start your day at the Jackson Street Roundhouse Train Museum with REAL caboose rides, blacksmith demonstrations, vendors on site, a food truck on site, balloon animals and face painting, door prizes, and museum exhibits!  

A fleet of vintage buses will offer tours of downtown St. Paul, sharing railroad history along the ride (included with admission)!

In conjunction with Train Day, MTM will be operating "The Last Mail Train".  As part of the train, Railway Post Office (RPO) Northern Pacific #1102  will be functioning in its original role as a railway post office.  This car is one of the last functioning Railway Post Offices in North America. The train is scheduled for departure from Union Depot at the end of Train Day at 4:00pm to our Osceola, WI depot.
