Passengers in the open air coach cars or privately booked caboose trains will travel 10 miles through Fairfield County.

The museum said the trains will run at 50% capacity. Added safety precautions will include increased sanitation cleanings.

All of the volunteer staff will wear face masks. Passengers are encouraged but not required to wear masks.

The museum closed to the public due to the coronavirus pandemic in March.
