You can enjoy a free family fun day and celebrate with the City of Kewanee during their first ever National Train Day event. Train enthusiasts will be able to see railroad memorabilia. Retired rail engineers and train collectors will answer questions about railroading. There will be tales of Abraham Lincoln riding the rails told by his law partner Billie Herndon, portrayed by storyteller and author Brian ‘Fox’ Ellis. Some other activities for the day include Kewanee Farmers Market, craft vendors, attractions and demonstrations. There will be free train rides for kids on a half scale model train. The Kewanee Historical Museum also will be open to view original Kewanee depot memorabilia. National Train Day was started by Amtrak in 2008. It is held each year on the Saturday closest to May 10th, the anniversary of the driving of the Golden Spike completing the first transcontinental railroad in 1869.
