Diesel Days

Purchase Tickets Online – Coming Soon

Feel the ground shake beneath your feet as you see, hear, and ride behind some of the most powerful locomotives ever built! Ride and see some of the less frequently run and rare diesel locomotives at IRM. See recently-restored locomotives like Santa Fe FP45 92 and Rock Island GP7R 4506 as well as new arrival Morristown & Erie C424 18. Bring your camera and enjoy the weekend!

The 2019 Diesel Days event on August 10th and 11th will assume the same format as last year. We will not have the parade of power as in previous years. Instead, there will be a set schedule of the four different trains running each day. The locomotives and lash-ups used on each train will be changed often. The date-specific links below include a schedule of the locomotives that will be on each train each day.
