Train Day History

Ashland Train Day started out as a celebration and recognition of Ashland’s railroad history at the Ashland Library in 2004.  It was an immediate success. Due to the popularity of trains with everyone, the event grew bigger each year until it expanded beyond the library with additional activities.  Today, Ashland Train Day has evolved into an all-day family train festival.

We now have activities, displays and music at multiple locations: 

  • Ashland Library
  • Hanover Arts and Activity Center
  • Ashland Train Station
  • Ashland Coffee & Tea
  • Ashland Museum and Red Caboose
  • Ashland-Hanover Shopping Center,
  • Henry Clay Inn
  • Ashland Rescue Squad
  • Town Municipal Parking Lot
  • and NEW!  Weems Lot off the Tracks
