Tender and Cinder, our Train Day Bears!

Ashland Train Day takes place in the heart of Ashland, Virginia–“the Center of the Universe!”

Train Day is an event for the whole family. Come visit us along the tracks for a day of fun and excitement. We have music, games, lots of model trains, children’s train rides, food, railroad related vendors, displays and of course our mascots – Cinder and Tender Bear, plus much, much more. Feel free to dress up for the day in your bib overalls, bandana and engineer hat. Don’t forget the camera!

Best of all, Train Day is FREE !

Due to limited parking, satellite parking is located in the Ashland-Junction (Roses) Shopping Center and St. Ann’s Church on Snead Street.

Ashland Train Day continues to grow!  As the crowds become larger, we offer  businesses, organizations and non-profits a great way to reach folks.  Don’t delay — apply for a Vendor Booth today!
