Overview

There was a time in our history when the railroad was a major mode of transportation and was used extensively for cargo transport across the country. Songs have even been written and sung about the long, shrill train whistles and the age of the locomotive. Hank Williams and Jimmy Rogers are prime examples of singers who have paid tribute over the years. The museum features old locomotives, railroad cars, artifacts and other equipment for viewing and exploring. Some cars are completely restored to reflect their glory days. Kids love blasting the engine horn as they pass by and climbing around in antique cabooses. The museum is closed during the winter. Call ahead for exact times.
