The thoughts of a train ride aboard a pullman car pulled by a steam locomotive stirs up the wanderlust in many people. One of the early portents of the Industrial Age, the railroad changed the face and pace of the world forever.
This is a state-by-state guide to over 300 railroad museums, historical, restored depots and special, nostalgic excursions available to the general public. Each entry provides a comprehensive description that blends historical perspective with an overview of the exhibit, including a guide to annual events at the site. Also given are the hours of operation and the cost of the event, along with addresses and phone numbers needed for further information.
