Wonderful trip for all who love history, trains and other types of things that go. Our favorite part was the roundhouse and being able to climb in some of the trains. Lots of walking. Picnic area near the entrance.

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 57-acre site covered in diesel train engines, steam train engines, and interactive exhibits devoted to transportation
  • Permanent Mainstay: Graham County Railroad #1925, a steam locomotive from 1925 that was commonly used on logging railroads
  • Crown Jewel: a narrated, 25-minute train ride of the site, during which guests are pulled in passenger cars by an antique diesel engine
  • Eye Catcher: Visits begin at theBarber Junction Visitor Center, which resides in an authentic train depot from 1898
  • Don't Miss: Some of the non-train relics on display, including a 1929 Model AA Fire Truck and a full-size replica of the Wright Flyer
  • Special Programs: behind-the-scenes 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
