USA : Pennsylvania : Railroad Museums

Since Pennsylvania (PA) has such a huge railroad history,
Pennsylvania has its own table of contents :

  • HOME - USA - Pennsylvania
  • Railroad history
  • Museums
  • Museum Railroads

    My POI's from Pennsylvania : Google Earth kmz-file
    [ Version 2014-02 ]
  • Altoona - Horseshoe Curve
  • Modern railroad in PA
  • Enola Yard
  • Norfolk Southern (NS)
  • CSX

  • This is NOT supposed to be a complete list.

    • The Altoona Railroaders Memorial Museum ➚ Altoona, Blair County.
      Together with the Horseshoe Curve it makes a trip to Altoona worth the time.
      The museum is named "Railroaders" and it focusses on the men and women who worked the railroad. Not so many locomotives and cars, but enough to keep anyone satisfied.

    • Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania ➚ Strasburg, Lancaster County.
      The museum to visit if you want to see locomotives and cars. In-door and out-door sections. Model-railroad layouts.
      Strasburg also have at least 2-3 other railroad attractions, so it is worth the trip :
      Strasburg Railroad ➚ A steam powered museum railroad.
      Choo Choo Barn ➚ Model-railroad layout in a style quite its own. Perhaps mainly for children, but I enjoyed it too.
      National Toy Train Museum ➚ Well - the name says it all; although "National" is perhaps unfair to the other 49 states in the USA.

    • Steamtown ➚ (Steamtown National Historic Site). Scranton, Lackawanna County.
      A very impressive museum with amongst other items one of the few remaining ( of 25 built ) "Big Boys" on display; # 4012. Both in-door and out-door sections.

    More to follow.
