It is private but there is another 24" group in that same town that is more open to the public. You should wait until we are back out there so you can operate the Greensburg to make it more fun. You have to use the brakes a boat load on account of the grades which is hard to tell in the pictures.

Twice a year in the Fall they offer train rides to the public and local NRHS group. We can probably schedule a private tour/excursion in the late winter or spring time.

The Greenburg 24 inch gauge battery locomotive is seen operating along the Teaberry and Southern Railroad. This is a private railroad built, owned and operated by two brothers, who are very interested in industrial rail equipment.
