Is there a schedule for the trains?
There is no way to know when the trains will be traveling down the rails behind OSM. However, thanks to great insulation, if the doors are closed, the train will not cause problems during your ceremony. You will know that a train is going by but it will not disrupt the speakers or music.

We do not have kitchen facilities. However, we have had many catered receptions on the patio without a problem. Please note there are no food or drinks allowed inside the chapel.
