May 19: Trains Galore! 
Guests can indulge in dining car-themed fare from Katering by Chef Anthony Carnevale II, such as a typical meal you would find on the Southern Pacific Railroad. Inside the Marshall Steam Museum, guests can explore special train displays, including an exhibit on vintage railroad china.

How did people ride around on those bicycles with the enormous wheels? Discover how with Delaware's Highwheel Bike Club, the Wheelmen, who will demonstrate a variety of early bicycles around the site!
