The museum was founded in 1970 by the Atlanta Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society. There are over 90 pieces of rolling stock exhibited on the 30-acre site. In 2000, the museum was given the title of being Georgia's official transportation history museum, and the collection of exhibits continues to diversify to reflect this.

In addition to the rolling stock there is a wide variety of railroad artifacts and an extensive archive. The grounds also contain the restored 1871 Duluth passenger train depot, a G16/Park train ride, and a model railroad housed in Building 1. Visitors can also take a brief train ride on restored cabooses over track which runs the length of the property.

It's a fascinating place

It's not a big, fancy commercial place. It's just a collection of old railway and other transportation memorabilia maintained by a non-profit organization and volunteers. If you're a fan of old... Read Full Review
