In 1974, Keith Mason created a steam engine railroad in his own backyard located in Clarksburg. He put together a hard- working and loyal crew that was committed to making the Locust Heights & Weston Railroad a success. The team’s passion created a true gift to the community.
The Locust Heights & Western Railroad is not only a wonderful way to spend a Wednesday evening it is also free! Climb on board every Wednesday at 7 p.m. and take a ride to remember!
The ride around Mason’s scenic property in Clarksburg takes approximately 25 minutes.
In 2015 the railroad had issues due to one of the coal-fire steam engines boilers broke down leaving the steam engine in need of some TLC.
Keith Mason did not let the lost boiler keep his dream from continuing. While he and his team make the necessary repairs to the steam engine a gasoline engine is pulling the train.
Visitors to Locust Heights & Weston Railroad can even check out the steam engine while the repairs are being completed.
If you are looking for a little adventure on a Wednesday evening head out to 115 Locust Height Drive in Clarksburg. All aboard!
