The former Rockton and Rion Railway in Fairfield County was donated to the museum in 1983, and it was renamed the Rockton, Rion, and Western Railroad (RR & W). It runs westward through the Rion community to the Anderson Quarry.

Do you have any plans to get the 44 under steam? We rebuilt our ex Southern engine #401 and have it running now but it took us over 15 years and a new boiler to do it. Thomas Scott.

I did not think much of the Rockton and Ryan Railroad until I saw that really deep rock cut to make it more interesting. We wonder if there will ever be steam on it. This is sort of an emotional matter; it would be great to have the Mike back. Oh, too bad it’s a welded rail. Will concrete ties be next????
