The museum itself opened in 1975 and featured an operating turntable from the Reading railroad. The bulk of its collection is over 100 steam engines from the Pennsylvania Railroad's historical collection. They are trying to get other pieces from other railroads but it looks like space may be an issue.
Another steam engine.
All in all, it was a pretty cool museum. I wish I could have spent more time there but we had other places to see. It's kind of a shame that the Pennsylvania Railroad had to go out of business but then again, I guess if they didn't we wouldn't have this museum.
Across the street from the museum is the Strasburg Railroad and I will have more about that when I post my ride on that engine.
