Choo choo, it's time to board the historic train for your locomotive ride, because we're at the North Alabama Railroad Museum!
Just east of Huntsville, this family friendly railroad museum has such a love of trains, they were created to preserve the rich railroad history, so visitors just like you can learn all about it!
You can enjoy the museum via a FREE self-guided tour, and make sure you pick up the tour sheets and museum brochures to help you navigate your way around. There are also friendly volunteers on hand to help with any questions yo may have!
Take the full tour for the best experience, where you can be taken through a variety of train cars and learn the grand history of the Alabama railroad.
Then, don't miss your chance to ride on the historic Mercury & Chase train yourself! It's best to book these in advance, and not only do they often sell out, but then you can ensure you are there for the departure time.
The total length of the line is 10 miles, and the trip lasts a little over an hour. The shorter trips last around 35 to 45 minutes.
