Join with the Railroad Museum of Long Island as it inaugurates steam operations of the H. K. Porter 0-4-0 steam locomotive, the “Roy Dunwell” No. 1.  Its firebox dark since 1999, this Southampton, NY steam locomotive has been restored by the Strasburg Rail Road Company for the Museum and registered and permitted by the State of New York to operate. See the locomotive run in place on its specially made tractor trailer, view blacksmithing demonstrations, see a historic steam engine, (driven by No. 1’s boiler), operating a steam hammer in the blacksmith shop!

Refreshments available and music 12-3pm each day. Try your hand at the toy train locomotive races, toy train switching puzzle, railroad related vendors, and more.
