The following days are for Long Island Live Steamers members and guests only. While we enjoy running the trains for our visitors, we also like to reserve some days for our own fun. It also gives our younger members a chance to run some trains.
This is the first event of each season and is our reward for cleaning up the track and preparing it for the Run Days ahead. Members bring food to share in the afternoon.
Friends and Family Days
These days are set aside to guarantee the track is available for members and their families and friends to enjoy a fun day running the trains. Our snack bar is closed on Friends and Family Days so members and guests should be prepared to bring their own food and drinks. Prospective members, please call ahead if you’d like to check us out on one of these days.
All good things come to an end and we like to celebrate the end of a run season with a final run at the track and a bring-a-dish meal provided by our members.
Steam Only Day
One day each year is set aside to enjoy the steam powered locomotives the organization was founded on. Members bring out their engines, some of which are rarely run. Some guests also visit with their equipment on this special day.
Many of our members find it hard to get through the winter without running their trains. If weather permits, we get together during the height of the winter for some fun. Since the water is shut down over the winter, steamers must supply their own and restroom facilities are not available on this day.
