Bring your family to Scarecrow Junction at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum in Calera every weekend in October. It’s a NEW family-fun, fall festival event that you don’t want to miss!
Seek out the hidden scarecrows displayed throughout the museum grounds and get your tickets to ride not just one – but two – different railroads. Ride behind the full-size, diesel C&S locomotive and, while you’re visiting, be sure to buy a ticket to ride the newly restored Shelby & Southern Narrow Gauge Steam Railroad and get your very own souvenir Golden Spike! Tickets for the Calera & Shelby Railroad Available online prior to the event. Tickets for the Shelby & Southern Railroad are available at the Shelby & Southern Railroad’s Depot prior to departure.
