Located in one of the state's two intact Rock Island depots, the Rock Island Depot Railroad Museum at 910 Second Street in Fairbury, Nebraska, gives visitors a look at life when trains were the fastest and classiest way to go anywhere, from the billowing steam engine to the 1950's stream-lined Rock Island Rocket.

    Look I love seeing this museum. I do wish that there was more history of the depot. I would like to know how the Rock Island Railroad helped the Allies win World War II. I know that Thomas Robinson engineered trains during for the Rock Island during World War II. Food had to move across the nation back then. Troops too. Was the Enola Gay transported by the Rock Island?
