Where are we going today?

At the National Railroad Museum we strive to introduce visitors to a chapter in national history that brought wealth and modernity to millions of Americans. Learning about the history of rail allows us to connect the political, cultural and economic influences that built America. It goes beyond a mere discussion of hardware but reveals that way in which rail shaped American culture through literature, music and historical events.

    I've just read how your keeping 60008 in it's present condition and I'm very pleased your looking after it.
    I spent my teenage years in Doncaster & York here in the UK watching the likes of 60008 and the other 33 similar locomotives going up and down the East Coast Main Line.
    Unfortunately I can't get over to your museum to see it again, but I did see it at York along with the other A4's at the Great Gathering.

    Many Thanks
    Brian

    Well worth a visit, but one shouldn't expect a theme park. It is a museum dedicated to preserving some items of an important part of US history.

    This museum is a remarkable collection of old railroad equipment. Unfortunately, it hasn't been very well kept up over the years. I live in this part of Wisconsin, and have visited the Museum several times in the past 15 years. Each time it seems more run-down. The first time I took the train ride, for instance, there were two stops along the way, where costumed staff would come on board and pretend to be train robbers or hoboes. The next time, the train just stopped and the guide just mumbled something about train robbers and hoboes. Last...Read More

This museum is a remarkable collection of old railroad equipment. Unfortunately, it hasn't been very well kept up over the years. I live in this part of Wisconsin, and have visited the Museum several times in the past 15 years. Each time it seems more run-down. The first time I took the train ride, for instance, there were two stops along the way, where costumed staff would come on board and pretend to be train robbers or hoboes. The next time, the train just stopped and the guide just mumbled something about train robbers and hoboes. Last time I was there they didn't even stop. So the "train ride" is just a ride around in a circle through some old weedy woods. The rest of the displays look equally neglected. A lot of the locomotives are just rusting away in the weeds, and could use some serious refurbishing, if the Museum really respects them. I imagine reconditioning this equipment is expensive, but the Museum doesn't look like they've done anything with it in all the years they've had it. It's kind of sad.
