Age of Steam Roundhouse Trip



The Greater Cincinnati Garden Railway Society is presenting a trip to the Age of Steam Round house in Sugar Creek, OH on September 12, 2015 by bus as a group.

The Age of Steam Roundhouse mission is to-

  1. Preserve the steam locomotives, historic diesels, passenger cars and other railroad relics in the collection of Jerry Joe Jacobson
  2. Construct a full-scale, operating and realistic roundhouse and back shop to overhaul, repair and maintain Jerry’s rolling stock
  3. Fire-up and operate the steam locomotives on non-passenger carrying freight trains
  4. Display and interpret railroad heritage for the edification, enlightenment and entertainment of future generations of Americans.

The collection of steam locomotive and other equipment is very impressive as is the facility itself. If you love trains, this is a trip you need to make.

The entire Age of Steam Roundhouse and site are being constructed and maintained with private funds donated by Jerry Joe and Laura Jacobson. It is expected that the roundhouse and back shop shall be completed in late 2011, with other buildings and structures being completed later during Phase 2 of this massive undertaking. Additionally, an endowment has been established so that the monumental construction work of this roundhouse and the treasures it contains may be guaranteed continued existence into the future.

There will not be any private vehicles allowed, no exceptions. We are limited to 45 for the trip. First come, First paid, will get your ticket for the trip. Please read all of the pages that pertain to you.
