Whoo-whoo; chugga-chugga. Get ready for Train Day at the Gainesville Midland #208 steam engine and caboose museum in Winder Saturday, Nov. 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. This is the rescheduled date from the weather-postponed September event.

Train enthusiasts of all ages can enjoy fun seeing the railroad memorabilia collection of Jim James Baughman, trustee with the Barrow County Historical Society and a retired CSX rail man with a career of memories of working on the railroad. He is a good storyteller and has written about his remembrances and also history of railroads of the area.
