SUGARCREEK, Ohio — For one, rare, day, the public will be able to visit and tour the Age of Steam Roundhouse and locomotive collection in central Ohio.

Public tours of the fabled roundhouse will be available in three sessions beginning at 11 a.m., Sept. 10. The tours will be followed up in the evening by a separate "Evening at the Roundhouse" reception from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Tour tickets are $20 a piece and reception tickets are $50. An Age of Steam representative tells Trains News Wire that after the public tours, access to the locomotives and most interesting portions of the roundhouse and grounds will be closed off for the reception. Proceeds from the reception benefit a local high school's scholarship fund.

Former Ohio Central owner Jerry Joe Jacobson uses the Age of Steam Roundhouse to house and display his collection of steam and heritage diesel locomotives.

More information is available online.
