Run Days (Public)
These are the days that LILS is open to the public. Typically, Run Days are typically scheduled for the second and last Sundays of the month from May through October. Our ride-on trains run from 10:30 AM to 3:00 PM. Tickets are required and may be obtained at our ticket booth. The ticket booth closes at 2:45 PM. While not required, donations are accepted at the ticket booth as well. Check out our Run Days page for our full schedule.
Several times a year, live steam hobbyists from around the northeast come to our track to run their trains. Typically they gather at our track on the Friday and Saturday of a Meet weekend. On those days the facility is open only to fellow live steamers, friends and family. Extra activities on Meet days include a dinner or barbecue, plenty of day time running, night running, and bi-directional running. The Run Day associated with the Meet weekend occasionally sees some of the out-of-towners staying for the public running of their rideable trains.
