This narrow-gauge steam train consists of a Crown steam locomotive and tender, that have been converted from coal powered steam to compressed air. The rest of the train consists of three open passenger cars, and a “caboose”, which carries the compressor.
The train and track were donated by the family of Edward Albert Link. He was the inventor of the WWII “Link Trainer” and deep-sea exploration diving vessels. The Link Trainer was a flight simulator produced in the early 30’s based on technology pioneered in 1929 by Link.
The Link train and track underwent a complete restoration and returned to scheduled service in March 2017. It is fully operational and is used daily by visitors to our museum. Ask about a ride on your next visit!
