Throughout the year, Waushakum hosts events open to visitors. Usually, there will be someone at the track by 8:30 or 9:00AM and until the late afternoon.  However, all depends on when members arrive and decide to leave.  No one is required to be there.  We are members of Waushakum because we have a passion for this great hobby.

For your safety and that of all involved, please abide by all of our rules, and enjoy your visit!

Thinking of bringing your locomotive? Please read our safety and operating rules  and visitor information.
