Long Description:
Willow Creek Railroad started in 1975 on the grounds of Antique Powerland. It now has over a mile of track and club members run many different types of engines. They are typically open to the public from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year. If you ride the train donations are requested to help fund the railway.

From Bandmasters Visit: "A word of warning! "Antique Powerland" is not always open every day. My recommendation is to check in at the office if you visit while they are closed to introduce yourself and get permission. It would also be good to check on their hours to minimize conflict and keep a good relationship and not abuse their hospitality."
