All train riders who wish to disembark at our Common Ground Country Fair Station must have a Fair Admission ticket. Valid tickets include fair tickets purchased in advance, a combo Fair/Train ticket, or a current MOFGA membership card. Our station on the fairgrounds is not near the Volunteer Check-In tent, so a fair admission ticket will be required to get admission to the grounds, even if volunteering.
The Railroad reserves the right to change train equipment and schedules without advance notice. The railroad cannot be responsible for unscheduled delays.
