Willimieli, the co-operation partenr of Jokioinen Museum Railway will again host handcar tours this summer!

Come and taste the old days of railroaders at Willimieli's handcar trip on Jokioinen Museum Railway! On a trip we jump on the hand car and skim the muscular force into the trackwork of old-fashioned style! After pumping the hadcar the veined muscles get into real action when we put the shovels, hacks, and limbs to swing to change railway sleepers. After changing a few sleepers, we enjoy the old time box lunch and pump our handcars back to Minkiö, where everyone will get a diplomas of the work well done. After that, we will have a guided tour at Minkiö station and steal locomotive sheds.

The trip takes about 3 hours and is tailored to the wishes and physical condition of the participants. There will be a supervisor who will familiarize participants with the safe use of handcars and work equipment. The price includes a guided tour of the Museum of the Jokioinen Museum Railway in Minkiö. It is possible to add catering and / or coffee-making as well as sauna in the authentic railway sauna at Minkiö station.

It is enough to have sturdy boots as shoes and regular outdoor clothing. Clothes may get dirty in the track work, so it is not worth putting the best outdoor clothes on! The organizer will provide good working gloves and some water to drink in addition food served.

The price of a trip for a group of up to 10 people is € 659 (VAT 24%). As an additional service, ready heated sauna at Minkiö can be rented 125 € (VAT 24%) and meals / coffee at the agreed price. The minimum age for participants is 15 years. Excursions are arranged according to the agreement during a period when gound is not snow covered or frozen (from late April to mid-October).
