Prairie Dog Central has been cancelled due to concerns over COVID-19. This is the first time in 21 years that their season has been completely cancelled. The last time one of their seasons was cancelled was when they relocated to their present location on Inkster Boulevard.
Paul Newsome, general manager of the Vintage
Locomotive Society which operates the train, stated that they felt that they could not live up to social distancing
inside the train coaches without putting families and passengers at risk.
All events planned for May, June and July for the Prairie Dog Central had already been cancelled. The fall season brought such popular events such as the fall supper diner train and the Halloween train.
The railway's remaining source of revenue is a commercial train car storage business, where the trackage is used to store rolling stock from other railroads.
