The Depot Museum's first Rail Fair is scheduled Oct. 15 and 16.
Vendors and artifacts from D&H's history will be on hand for visitors to enjoy. The Saratoga-North Creek Railroad will offer half-price tickets during the event.
Museum Director Ray Flanigan said D&H will send up railroad artifacts that haven't been publicly displayed before, giving visitors a unique opportunity. The railway's engine house, where trains are serviced, will be open for tours. SNCRR will have demonstrations of the turntable, which Museum Director Ray Flanigan said is itself an artifact of early rail.
The turntable's been around so long that it began as a man-powered machine. It was retrofitted with a motor for electric power instead, but all the machinery still works the way it did before electric cables were strung all around the country.
There’s also an old milk car at the depot that Flanigan thinks is the last D&H milk car in existence. The interior is not original, but he's hoping they can incorporate the relic into their tours. There will also be a bus offered, for a fee, to visit Railroads on Parade in Pottersville.
