Safety

  • The museum is a rail and transportation museum hosted in a former industrial site. There is a significant amount of walking involved in visiting the museum and there is a mixture of walking surfaces. For your safety we recommend closed toe, flat, shoes and we recommend avoiding flip flops and sandals.
  • We also ask that children refrain from running at all times.
  • Please do NOT place items on the rail. The uneven surfaces can cause items you're trying to see mashed flat turn into projectiles and injure someone.
  • Please stay at least 5 feet away from the tracks when the train is moving.
  • Please do NOT venture outside the front fence. The mainline is owned and operated by Norfolk Southern Railway.
