If you just LOVE trains, then you might want to visit this Fall River railroad museum - which is located in a REAL active railroad yard!

The Old Colony and Fall River Railroad Museum and it's collection can tell you all about the rich history of railroading within the Fall River area, and many of the displays are actually located in four unique railroad cars!

Kids will also get a kick out of stepping into their caboose on display. They can sit in the actual seats, or even lie in a conductors bunk and just imagine what like would have been like as a railroad man!

Get those conductor hats ready!
