Saluda Train Tales is a free monthly event to educate the community of the importance of Saluda’s railroad history and the Saluda Grade, the steepest, standard gauge, mainline railroad in the US. Storytelling is the third Friday of the month at 7pm, March through December. These events are at the Saluda Historic Depot, 32 W Main Street, Saluda, NC 28773. We are pleased to start this monthly storytelling again after COVID on September 17, 2021 at 7pm with author, aeronautical engineer, piano tuner, Garland Goodwin remembering his tales of the railroad and people of Saluda and Polk County. “I have many fond memories of a childhood filled with railroading lore, fascinating for this youngster, who had become fearless instead of frightened,” says Garland. Door open at 6:30 and current COVID guidelines with be in effect.
