The Great Rail Race

The Great Rail Race was held in the fall of 2019, and gave local students a chance to learn a little about what it was like to be a coal miner. Students raced pine derby cars on a track before learning the history of the rail horse, a piece of wood that miners used to ride down the mountain on their way home from the mines.
