The Ghost Train
A theatre production showing from March 31st-April 1st

Wayward and Mission Theatre Companies and The Minnesota Transportation Museum are thrilled to team up to bring you The Ghost Train by Arnold Ridley. 

This sometimes spooky and often hilarious tale follows a group of unlikely companions who find themselves unexpectedly stranded in a desolate train station just outside of Rockland, Maine. Local legend tells of an ominous and deadly force that haunts 
those
there parts. Will our band of unlikely heroes live to tell the tale of the haunted locomotive? 

The Minnesota Transportation Museum is delighted to provide the backdrop for this creepy comedy. 

Friday, April 7 & 14
Step back in time with on a historic vintage bus ride, learn a little bit about the seedy side of St. Paul, and enjoy some spectacular local craft beer at a local craft brewery. Then head back to the museum and bust a gut with the creepy comedy hit of the year! ($45 – includes tour, two beers at the brewery and admission to the performance)

Saturday, April 1, 8 & 15
Calling all Molls and Dolls! Slip into your best flapper attire (optional of course) and enjoy a First Class dinner on the vintage train car inside the historic museum. Savor an exquisitely prepared 
three-course meal with wine pairings. And bust a gut with the creepy comedy hit of the year! ($65 – includes dinner, wine, and admission to the performance)

Train Day & The Last Mail Train
Saturday, May 6th


​​
When: Saturday, May 6th from 10:00am-4:00pm!

Where: Our historic Jackson Street Roundhouse Train Museum at 193 E. Pennsylvania Ave., St. Paul, 55130

What: The Minnesota Transportation Museum is planning a day to explore train history throughout St. Paul, MN!  Start your day at our Jackson Street Roundhouse Train Museum with REAL caboose rides, blacksmith demonstrations, vendors on site, a food truck on site, balloon animals and face painting, door prizes, and museum exhibits!  

We will have our fleet of vintage buses offering tours of downtown St. Paul sharing railroad history along the ride (included with admission)!  Our buses will also serve as shuttles from our museum to other various sites for you and your family to enjoy - Union Depot, The James J. Hill Center, and The Twin City Model Railroad Museum!

In conjunction with Train Day, MTM will be operating "The Last Mail Train".  As part of the train, Railway Post Office (RPO) Northern Pacific #1102  will be functioning in its original role as a railway post office.  This car is one of the last functioning Railway Post Offices in North America.  It is currently one of two certified for movement on mainline rail!  The train is scheduled for departure from Union Depot at the end of Train Day at 4:00pm to our Osceola, WI depot.  






















We are partnering with the U.S. Postal Service for the 40th anniversary of the end of RPO service.  This will be the first time in some 40 years that an actual RPO postmark will be used.  

We are selling exclusive items related to the Northern Pacific #1102.  We have set up a shop for you to purchase your commemorative covers, postcards, and books!


We are still in the planning stages for this event, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and to check back often to stay in the loop!
