Norfolk Southern exhibit in Landrum

Published 5:10pm Monday, December 3, 2012

Many visitors’ favorite portion of the exhibit has been a locomotive simulator that puts guests in control of a virtual freight train through display throttle, brakes and horn.

Inside the exhibit car there is also a display showing the heritage of the company’s locomotives through models along with historical descriptions of each railroad and a flat-screen monitor showing images of the real locomotives.

Families can also take part in the Load the Line game inside the railcar. This game challenges players to match freight products with the type of rail car they would be hauled inside.

Kids might also enjoy the ability to get snapshots against a train backdrop inside the railcar’s photo booth.

Northfolk Southern also asks that visitors sign their electronic guestbook so they can document the number of people who stopped by while the car was on display.

The exhibit car first appeared in Chicago in May. Landrum will be its last stop on the tour. Viewing the exhibit is free to community members.
