Throttle Time - Speeder Edition

Orrville Railroad Heritage Society, Orrville, OH

Sold Out

Would a full-sized locomotive seem a bit too intimidating to operate? Then get close and personal with the track and try your hand at running a speeder. Speeders, officially known as motor cars or track cars, were used to haul personnel to remote locations for maintenance duties. Learn about how speeders work and take a spin down the track at the controls. Sessions are $50, last about an hour and you can bring two guests along to ride with you. And, you get to pick your "ride". We have four Fairmont A4 speeders to choose from.

Operators must be at least 16 years old with a valid driver's license or photo ID. Knowing how to drive a 4-speed manual transmission is very helpful but is not necessary.

Session must be booked no later than midnight the day before your session. This allows us to get your chosen speeder ready.
