Train Museums and Preservation Efforts




Age of Steam Railroad Museum
The Age of Steam Railroad Museum has one of the oldest and most comprehensive heavyweight passenger car collections in the United States, with a complete pre World War II passenger train. Over thirty pieces of historic railroad equipment including steam, diesel and electric locomotives, cabooses , historic structures, and assortment of small artifacts make it one of the finest railroad museums in the southwest United States.



Railroader's Heritage Corporatio
The Railroader's Heritage Corporation showcases the Pennsylvania Railroad's contribution to the nation’s transportation infrastructure, and to production standardization, marks it as one of the most important contributors to America's industrial revolution. By the 1920s, the Altoona railroad works employed 15,000 workers, and by 1945 the Pennsylvania Railroad's facilities at Altoona had become the world's largest rail shop complex.



B&O Railroad Museum
The B&O Railroad Museum is dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of American railroading through the history and legacy of the Baltimore and Ohio Railroad, the Chesapeake and Ohio Railway, the Western Maryland Railway, and the regional railroads of the mid-Atlantic. In 1999, the B&O Railroad Museum joined the Smithsonian Institution's Affiliates Program becoming the first railroad museum and the first museum in Maryland to hold that distinction.



California State Railroad Museum
the California State Railroad Museum is widely regarded as one of North America’s finest and most visited railroad museums, there is something here for everyone! Throughout the year, experience lavishly restored trains, engaging exhibits, and unique special events.



Railtown 1897 State Historic Park
Located in Jamestown, California, Railtown 1897 State Historic Park is home to one of America’s last authentic, operating railroad roundhouses. Known as “The Movie Railroad,” Railtown’s locomotives and cars have appeared in over 200 film and TV productions. Guided walking tours of the Historic Sierra Railroad Shops and Roundhouse are available daily.



Railroad Historical.com
rrhistorical.com should be one of your first stops for quality Railroad Information on the Internet.



The Colorado Railroad Museum
The Colorado Railroad Museum is recognized as one of the best privately supported rail museums in the United States. This "can't miss" site for railfans features over 70 historic narrow and standard gauge locomotives and cars exhibited on 15 acres at the foot of North Table Mountain, near Golden, Colorado.



Gopher State Railway Museum
The Gopher State Railway Museum (GSRM) is not open at this time. They are a nonprofit organization with a focus on preserving railroad history by building a railroad museum park. All plans for the park have been finalized. The museum will be built in stages as money and volunteers become available. The plans include a station, car maintenance building, beanery, and multiple railroad related structures. GSRM owns a 20 acre plot of land 2 miles north of New Prague, Minnesota on State Highway 21.



Illinois Railway Museum
The Illinois Railway Museum, as you see it today, is the result of decades of effort by a dynamic group of dedicated volunteers. All of the buildings, track, locomotives and cars were assembled at Union on what was once farmland. Their main line trackage was laid on the vacant right-of-way of the Elgin & Belvidere Electric railway.



The Indiana Transportation Museum is a volunteer run, non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve Indiana's railroad history, educate the public in the history of the railroad, and provide visitors with an opportunity to experience railroad travel as it used to be. They operate on 38 miles of track once known as the Indianapolis & Peru, and more recently, as the Nickel Plate Road.



The Komoka Railway Museum
The mission of The Komoka Railway Museum is to preserve the railroad history of the Komoka, Ontario, area of Canada. Many railroad items are available for close examination including telegraph keys, spike hammers, spike pullers, switch lanterns, steam gauges, a railroad safe, a baggage sleigh and a three-wheel velocipede. Serious researchers are welcome to browse through the Museum's extensive library of books, photos, and newspaper clippings (of which some are published on-line)



Lisle Station Park
Lisle Station Park was created in 1978 to provide a home for the community's historic train depot. Through the cooperative efforts of the Lisle Park District, Lisle Heritage Society and Village of Lisle, our community's rich heritage is preserved for generations to come.



The Mad River and NKP Railroad Society
The Mad River & NKP Railroad Society in 1976 opened the museum as a lasting bicentennial project. Henry Flagler, who built the Florida East Coast Railroad once lived on the property where the museum is now located. The private collection of Ted & Sarah Church of Erie, PA is an interesting addition to our museum. The collection is displayed in former Troop Sleepers which were used by the U.S. Army during the war.



The Museum of America's Freedom Trains
The Museum of America's Freedom Trains. Preserving the memory of the two greatest railroading events of the 20th Century...
The Freedom Train was conceived as an opportunity to reflect on the meaning of American citizenship. Americans had experienced a decade of pre-war economic Depression. They made sacrifices in foreign lands throughout World War II. President Harry Truman believed Americans should pause and reflect, to experience a "rededication" to the principles that founded their country. President Truman loved trains, and his use of the "whistle stop" campaign train still epitomizes this icon of the electoral process. His staff proposed a train that would travel to communities in every state of the nation, taking with it dozens of "documents of liberty."
