Visitors got to see more than 200 vehicles, and vintage railroad motor cars and other railroad equipment were alongside the current location of Lorain's Caboose C-3855.

Guests even toured inside the caboose and learned the important history of the railroads in Lorain. This on-the-spot history lesson was possible due to a volunteer and former crewman who worked on this very caboose when it was in service.
