About North Carolina Transportation Museum

It would be hard to pick a more fitting site for the North Carolina Transportation Museum. At one time, its web of train tracks and buildings served as the largest servicing facility for Southern Railway Company's steam locomotives. Today, it performs a different service: preserving an authentic slice of locomotive history, with some early planes and cars thrown in for good measure.

  • Size: a 60-acre site covered in diesel train engines, steam train engines, and interactive exhibits devoted to transportation
  • Permanent Mainstay: the permanent exhibit of antique and classic fire trucks from the first half of the 20th century, always on display in the newly opened Back Shop
  • Crown Jewel: the 37-stall Bob Julian Roundhouse, the largest operating roundhouse in North America, filled with locomotives, antique railroading equipment, the replica Wright Flyer, and much more
  • Eye Catcher: visits begin at the Barber Junction Visitor Center, which resides in an authentic train depot from 1898
  • Don't Miss: a narrated, 25-minute train ride of the site, during which guests are pulled in passenger cars by an antique diesel engine
  • Special Programs: Nighttime tours, the chance to operate a real steam engine, and birthday parties held in a caboose
  • Pro Tip: It takes about three hours to see all the exhibits and ride the train
