On Saturday, September 30, 2017 at 9:00 am Car #29 will begin its journey from the Village of Grass Lake’s Department of Public Works barn along Michigan Ave. until reaching the Lost Railway Museum at 142 W. Michigan Ave. Grass Lake, MI. Car #29 will join Car #47 already in the museum.

In preparation for the moving of Car #29 trucks (wheels) and for Car #29 itself, we need to rearrange the entire museum. The museum will be closed Sept. 27th and Sept. 28th to allow us proper time to make those arrangements.
