Baldwin residents able to ride Midland train for reduced price
Baldwin City residents will have a extra opportunity to enjoy Midland Railway this weekend.
In cooperation with the Baldwin City Chamber of Commerce, Midland Railway will be sponsoring a train run 7 p.m. Saturday for Baldwin residents only.
Midland marketing director Bob Hruska said all Baldwin residents are invited to ride the train at half price.
"This is a special train ride to show our appreciation to the residents of Baldwin," Hruska said. "This is also a chance to get to know us and ask questions. It's a get acquainted session."
Tickets for the train rides are $4 for adults and $2 for children. Reservations are not needed.
"We will accommodate anybody that comes," Hruska said.
Before the train rides, there will be an ice cream social from 6 to 7 p.m. at the park adjacent to the depot. Hruska said the price of the ice cream has yet to be determined.
"We will have a lot of different flavors to choose from," he said.
Chamber of Commerce office manager Sharole Prahl said the event is a good opportunity for Baldwin residents.
"It's an opportunity to enjoy the sites and the train ride itself," Prahl said. "It's a good chance to see what Midland's been able to accomplish with the grants.
"People should get their friends and families together to go out and enjoy the evening," she said.
