Last Monday at Versailles to feature Local Railroad

Can you hear the sound of the train whistle? Or perhaps you can see the black smoke curling up in the autumn blue sky?  Maybe you know the engineer as he waves to you as the friendly little train makes its way through the eastern farms of Darke County?

This would be the life 100 years ago along the route of the famed CH&D (Cincinnati, Hamilton, & Dayton) railroad. This train making its way through the farmland with stops in Versailles, Yorkshire, and Osgood was like a visit with old friends.

Bob Luttmer, our resident train enthusiast along with the help of our expert researcher, Sarah Magoto will tell the story of what people today said was our local version of the old 1960’s TV show, “Petticoat Junction”.

A table of CH&D memorabilia will also be on display for all to enjoy during our program.

We invite you to join us for our September Last Monday program on September 26th at the Versailles Area Museum boarding is at 1:00 p.m. to relive the days of the little train that could!
