The Stourbridge Line has a full schedule starting Friday, September 13 with Rails & Ales, Saturday, September 14, Big Sky TRAIN-IN Movie Theatre, Speeders & Ring of Fire. Tickets & more information can be found at www.thestourbridgeline.net Stop at the Station on Saturday, September 14, 9 AM - 12 noon to take a short trip in a restored speeder. These speeders or “motorcars” were used by railroads as track inspection vehicles. These little vehicles are almost like a go-cart that rides on rails. The Stourbridge Line also will be hosting The Ring of Fire demonstration, held at the Wayne County Visitors Center. The Ring of Fire is like changing a tire on a train but heated up to over 350 degrees. The kids will love it!
Want to duel? Would you like to resolve any differences in a genteel manner? The
gentle art of Tea Dueling is a sport for all ages. There will be two duels a day hosted by
Honesdale Greenhouse at 11 AM and 2 PM. Prizes awarded to duel winners. Arrive 30 minutes prior to participate. The martial brew and biscuits will be provided.
Things to do downtown include Historical Society Museum open Saturday from 10 AM to 4 PM. and Sunday from noon to 4 PM. The Old Stone Jail will open from 10 AM to 1 PM. Maybe you will bump into our very own Phono-fiddle player while he strolls the streets offering music from a time long ago.
