Visitors will learn about the historical importance of railroads from
museum volunteers who will explain the type of work that is required to
restore and refurbish these railcars to keep them “alive” as a testament to
the glory days of rail passenger travel. Several cars feature interior
displays of the typical accommodations for the traveling public, including
seating, sleeping arrangements, dining facilities, complete with
custom-made railroad dining car china.
The museum’s diesel locomotive will be open, affording visitors the
opportunity to blow the horn, and Chandler’s historic #2562 steam
locomotive also will be on display. Outdoor displays include a wide variety
of railroad signs, signals, and mining equipment.
The Museum is open from 12noon – 4 pm on Saturdays and Sundays from September through May.
