Train Museums of America

Trains.  Ask anyone born in the first half of the 20th century how they traveled long distances, and chances are they'll say by train.  In 1920 trains were carrying 1.2 Billion passengers, but that was also the beginning of the auto industry, and we all know how that turned out.

Trains still play a role in transporting people and cargo, and there is great interest (and debate) about increasing the role of trains in mass transit.  Revisit the trains, and their history, at the 62 train museums listing on our map.  Chugga Chugga Choo Choo!
