NARCOA brings Speeder Car rides back this year.

Ride the Rails again this year at Pig Fest XV!

10 a.m. - 5 p.m.

The Southeastern Railcar Operators, an affiliate of North American Railcar Operators Association (NARCOA), will provide round-trip rail motorcar excursions from downtown Richland to Hwy. 520. The group will set up headquarters on the tracks behind City Hall, according to spokesman, Will Thompson. The cars were used to inspect endless stretches of track to keep it safe for rail transportation. Richland was once a major north-south crossroads for freight traffic. NARCOA members have cleared the tracks from Richland to Omaha and visit Richland several times each year for runs.

Visit Richland Rail Museum and see the speeder car that was stationed in Richland and built in the 1930s!
