According to their website they run steam on "select days". Whats interesting is that I thought several years ago Edaville was turned into a "Thomas Land", but the website doesn't show much about that. So I'm wondering if that deal fell through? In any case it looks like at least the majority of Edaville is more of a young kids amusement park which is what I recall from when we took our kids there probably 7 or 8 years ago now.

Bob, et al:
The old Edaville right of way went north of Atwood Reservoir, then passed close to Meadow St. Anyone recall if this is where Santa's Village was, or was it next to one of the bogs? Be fun to place faded memories from about 1980 or so.
In Google Earth, viewing Meadow St and Paige Ct in Carver will
show several homes. Rewind the view to 12/2001, and the right of
way appears, pre-construction. A quick plot says the abandoned
alignment is 3.89 miles, or so.
Recall, too, recall the Sept 1993 convoy of equipment (engines,
cars, etc) back to Maine. This likely played a roll in in
shortening the route.
