SUGAR CREEK, Ohio— This summer and autumn, the Age of Steam Roundhouse will offer private guided tours on Saturdays three times a day.

The 10 a.m. and 1 and 3 p.m. tours will offer visitors a look at Age of Steams' collection that includes more than a dozen steam locomotives and numerous diesel locomotives and pieces of rolling stock collected by Jerry Joe Jacobson. The grounds aren’t intended to function as a working shop and not a museum, so the equipment within is usually out of the public eye.

There are a few qualifications for prospective tours: Groups must be made up of 40 or more people, children under ten are not allowed, and children between the ages of 10 and 17 must provide a liability waiver signed by their parent or legal guardian.

The Age of Steam staff request that interested groups contact the roundhouse at (330) 201-0037 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays to schedule a time and date for a tour. There is no preset limit to how many people can participate in a tour. Currently, the Age of Steam does not have a system in place to match individuals or smaller parties with larger prospective tour groups.
