The steam train is not on the refurb schedule for the rest of the year. At least not yet. BTM however is down all of October. Aug 8 to Nov 18.

Does anyone know or have a way of finding out if the railroad will be down for refurbishment in October as well? I'm pretty sure I recall it being down every fall.

What changes were made? Fixing up a part of the track, I assume, but if there was anything else please let me know. Just quoting this because I want to know the same. Does anyone know?

New up and running date is April 27. Testing on the 26th but no guests riding. The Welcome Show is performing with the dancers and the Mayor at the normal time.

Maybe their adding real ticket booths at the stations so it will be a "pay to ride" :p
