The N.C. Transportation Museum will combine classic farm equipment with railroading Saturday, April 12. Now in its eighth year, the Annual Antique Tractors and Trains Show will feature classic machinery, a kiddie tractor pull and a parade of tractors across the museum grounds.
The Antique Tractors and Trains Show begins at 10 a.m. and the show will run through 4 p.m.
Featured events during the show include a parade of tractors from Barber Junction at the north end of the property, to the Bob Julian Roundhouse at the south end of the property. The parade will lead to the museum's turntable, a great place for photographers of the equipment on display.
Another popular attractions is always the Kiddie Tractor Pull. Kids can hop aboard pedal-powered miniature tractors, provided by members of the Iron Peddlers, and race across the museum grounds. Ribbons will be awarded for 1st, 2nd and 3rd place finishers in each age group.
The event is free to attend and see this great collection of tractors as well as the museum’s classic locomotives and rail cars, but museum admission is required for exhibits and the train ride.
