Two trains are displayed inside the main exhibit hall - one of 1920s vintage and the other from the 1950s. Over 80 other pieces of retired railway rolling stock including vintage steam and diesel locomotives, passenger coaches, private cars, a World War II troop kitchen, wooden freight cars, and maintenance of way equipment, are displayed on the museum's 30-acre site. Trains rides aboard restored cabooses are complementary with admission. The museum is accepting sponsorship applications for inclusion in the Wall of Honor that is being built and will be dedicated to all of the men and women who built, operated, and maintained all of the transportation systems that have made this country prosper and those who have helped preserve the history of transportation.
