Group plans trip onsteam-powered train

On June 8 the Mahoning Valley Railroad Heritage Association will operate a special steam-powered passenger train from Dennison, Ohio to Sugar Creek, Ohio.

The train will be pulled by the Ohio Central's newly restored 4-8-4 steam locomotive No. 6325. This is a former Grand Trunk Western Railroad steamer, and it is the largest steam locomotive owned by the Ohio Central Railroad.

The train will depart from the former Pennsylvania Railroad Passenger Station in Dennison at 8:30 a.m. and arrive in Sugar Creek at noon.

During the trip, a stop will be made at the Ohio Central Steam Shop at Morgan Run. Passengers will be able to take a brief tour of the shop, and see another of the Ohio Central's steam locomotives undergoing a major overhaul. Passengers will have three hours in Sugar Creek to enjoy shopping, sightseeing, and Amish restaurants before boarding the train for the return trip to Dennison.

Coach tickets are $69 each and can be purchased with a Visa or Mastercard by calling (800) 571-1199 or by sending a check to MVRH, P.O. Box 3055, Youngstown, Ohio 44511.

The Mahoning Valley Railroad Heritage Association is a nonprofit corporation, and is sponsoring this trip as a fund-raising project to assist in further rail preservation efforts in the Mahoning Valley.
