Toledo still plans to hold a National Train Day this year, although it will not apparently have the headliner external exhibits that it has had in the past.
Thus far the only announced railroad exhibit will be Ann Arbor Railroad GP38 No. 3879.
Built in 1969, the locomotive has been painted in a commemorative livery to honor the history of the Ann Arbor, which is now a Watco Companies property.
This year’s event will be the 10th National Train Day celebration in Toledo.
Past events have featured heritage and special livery locomotives of Norfolk Southern as well as an Amtrak exhibit train.
It is not clear yet if either NS or Amtrak will be participating in the event.
The event’s sponsors say on their Facebook page that as in past years the festival will feature vendors, model railroad displays, children’s train rides, a safety workshop oriented to children, food and train watching of the nearby NS Chicago Line from the Amtrak station platforms.
