October 13th Non-Group Tour Day - SOLD OUT

Due to another very positive response, we cannot accept any additional reservations for our Non-Group Tour Day on Saturday, October 13th.

We are working on exciting plans for more frequent non-group tour opportunities in 2019.  Please watch this space for annoucements as plans are finalized.

2018 Group Tours

From May 3, 2018, to October 27, 2018, AoSRH will be OPEN THREE DAYS A WEEK for pre-scheduled group tours on THURSDAYS, FRIDAYS and SATURDAYS at 10:00 am, 12:00 noon and 2:00 pm.

The Age of Steam Roundhouse is a real, working locomotive repair facility. Due to OSHA laws, fire code rules and insurance regulations, we cannot let people walk around unescorted at the Age of Steam Roundhouse. For your safety, all AoSRH visitors must be in pre-scheduled tour groups.

All visitors must be escorted by an AoSRH tour guide. Since it is not practical for each individual or small group to have its own, personal tour guide, we have set the new minimum size for tour groups at 30 people.

Use the Contact Us link at the top of the page to schedule a tour for your club, group or organization to visit Age of Steam Roundhouse. We have hosted railfans and retirees, farmers and Model-T car owners, and church groups and Scout troops.

Don’t have a club? Get your friends together, reserve a date and time with us, and come to Sugarcreek for your tour. Or, coordinate several unrelated groups to arrive at AoSRH at the same time to take their scheduled tours.


  • our spectacular, 18-stall, timber-framed, brick roundhouse and 115-foot turntable
  • our collection of 20 iron horses, from diminutive 0-4-0 saddle-tankers to a giant 2-8-4 and 4-8-4
  • beautifully restored steamers, resplendent in shiny paint and ready for your camera lens
  • some rough locomotive hulks, indoors and ready to be restored
  • our fully-outfitted backshop with two locomotives being rebuilt back to operational status
  • old freight cars, passenger cars, and diesels, as well as all sorts of other railroad items

Before arriving at the Age of Steam Roundhouse for your pre-scheduled tour, everyone in your group needs to wear proper shoes that cover their entire feet (no sandals, no flip-flops, no beach shoes—no exceptions!), sign a liability release (sorry, no children under the age of 5), and wear old clothes because a railroad roundhouse can be a dirty place. There is an admission charge of $20.00 per person (cash or check only). Sorry, no credit cards.

Also new for 2018, we will no longer request that you refrain from sharing photos taken in our facility via social media now that major construction is complete. Like most museums, we will still restrict commercial use of photos from AoSRH without permission. We look forward to seeing your best shots at #AgeofSteamRoundhouse.

Pre-scheduled group tours on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays from May 3 through October 27, 2018, can be scheduled by using the Contact Us link. Please use the same link to have additional tour information e-mailed to you. We hope to see you soon at Age of Steam Roundhouse!
