The Age of Steam Roundhouse in Sugarcreek, Ohio is simply fantastic! This museum sits on 34 acres of land adjacent to the Ohio Central Railroad System. The sale of OCRS in December of 2008 to Genesee and Wyoming provided the financing needed for Jerry Jacobson, its former owner, to build the 18 stall brick roundhouse. The roundhouse is the first full-sized working roundhouse to be built in the US since 1951 and it is beautiful.
Inside you will find a large collection of steam locomotives. Many of these were former OCRS assets the remained with Jerry when he sold his company. They all look stunning with the backdrop of the roundhouse. There were 22 steam locomotives in the museum's collection when we visited.
There are many more pieces of equipment in the yard. There are 2-miles of track to store train cars and locomotives.
A tour of the Age of Steam Roundhouse is well worth the trip to Sugarcreek, Ohio. If you go, be sure to give Felix a scratch for us. Peg didn't want to leave so I had to pry her fingers loose from the wig-wag crossing sign.
