Overview
More
The Southeastern Railway Museum occupies a 35-acre site in Duluth, Georgia, in northeast suburban Atlanta. In operation since 1970, the Southeastern Railway Museum features about 90 items of rolling stock including historic Pullman cars and classic steam locomotives. Museum hours vary seasonally. Ride in restored cabooses behind restored antique diesel locomotives, stand next to the massive driving wheels of the locomotive that once pulled passenger trains to Key West on the “railroad that went to sea,” tour the business car that helped bring the Olympics to Atlanta, pose in the private car once used by President Warren G. Harding, and step inside a dining car used by FDR on one of his many trips to Warm Springs, GA. The mission of the Southeastern Railway Museum is to provide an educational atmosphere that will vividly bring to life the cultural, technological and historical importance of transportation to our region.

This railway museum is very large and interesting. The highlight may be the train Superb, built in 1911, in which President Warren Harding traveled across the country and then returned his body after his death in San Francisco in 1923. There are a large number...More

Great for toddlers to elementary school-aged children who like to be able to climb on and tinker with old trains and busses. Late fall, it is also a great way to get pictures with Santa, and maybe even ride the little train with him. This...More

This is a blast from the past of trains particularly from the early 1900's. You can get to see what they were like riding in coach and sleeper cars. They even had the train car that President Warren Harding traveled and eventually died in. We...More
