Membership in Rough and Tumble is widespread both by age and geographically. It is not unusual to see three and even four generations of a family riding around the grounds on a huge steam traction engine during events. Likewise, the parking lot is full of cars and motor homes from all over the United States and Canada during Annual Reunions.

Membership in Rough and Tumble renewable at the beginning of each year and is payable at the gift shop, via mail or now by PayPal with your credit card thru our web site. We also offer Lifetime memberships.  Membership brings many benefits.

Please note if you renew your membership online via paypal before you receive your mailed membership card just prior to a show, you should bring your PayPal receipt for entrance.

"Work Saturdays" are the first Saturday of each month. As an active member of the Association, we hope that you will participate in monthly work days and events. This allows members to get hands on experience in the hobbie of their choice, be it steam, gas, diesel, blacksmithing, trains, machine shop, etc. Additionally your monthly participation helps R & T maintain the buildings, grounds, and equipment for future generations.

To participate in a work day for a particular area of the Musuem:


Russ Jenkins – Blacksmith Shop

Bill Hazzard - Large Gas Engine

Allen Gruver - Little Toot Railroad

Dennis Hornberger –  Shay Railroad

Tom Mauro – Stationary Steam Engine

Butch Biesecker – Steam Traction Engine
