Open House August 22nd

Our highly anticipated 6th Annual Open House was held Saturday August 22nd. Doors opened at 11 AM and it ended at 4 PM. There were sales and specials on everything in the store. As always the hot dogs and hamburgers from Big Dog’s were a big favorite and everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the exceptional weather.  We saw many familiar faces and made new friends.  We have decided to continue our sales until the end of August for those who were unable to attend.

A HUGE thank you to all who attended and those who helped make this a very memorable day!  We couldn’t have done it without you.  A truly successful business cannot sustain itself without a loyal customer base and we value ours.

For photos of past Open Houses check out our Facebook.

Today we share with you Adam’s latest video production from his own YouTube Channel. For the weekend of July 3-5th he was in Roanoke, VA riding behind the newly restored Norfolk & Western Class J Northern #611. There were two different trips you could take and Adam rode both the eastbound Powhatan Arrow from Roanoke to Lynchburg  and the westbound Pelican from Roanoke to Radford . On the days he did not ride it he visited the O. Winston Link Museum located inside of the former N&W Roanoke Station and the Virginia Museum of Transportation home of the J, the A and for the next 5 years the last Y6a. Besides the museums, Roanoke is a true railroad town as it is home to the former N&W office building and Hotel Roanoke along with the Shaffers Crossing Engine Terminal and Roanoke Shops which are still used by Norfolk Southern today.

For more information on the 611, Roanoke, along with local railroad sites and locomotives check out these websites below! The 611 may be done for the summer but 765 is getting ready to go!
