New York - Salamanca Rail Museum
The Salamanca Rail Museum's building was constructed in 1912 by the Buffalo Rochester & Pittsburgh Railroad, B.R.&.P) as a passenger station in downtown Salamanca on Main Street. This station was built for passengers in the down town area of Salamanca so they wouldn't have to travel as far to get to the East Salamanca Station on the Eastern end of the city. The B.R.&.P. was bought out by the Baltimore and Ohio (B.&.O) in 1928. The short line between the two stations was kept open through the years of passenger service, until services were ended in 1956 as the passenger service came to an end. The Station was then closed up shortly after. In 1980 the station was then re-opened after standing still in time for over 20 years, and is now open to the public as a museum displaying the three major railroads that came the the city of Salamanca, The B&O/BR&P, The Erie railroad, and the Pennsylvania railroad along with many other artifacts that members and guests have donated to the museum over time from diffrent railroads around the area and those of which came through the city. These artifacts range from paper work of those who worked for the railroads, to Bagage Carts and a Track Speeder. All of which are on display at our Museum. Our Museum also has on display several Rail Cars that are open to the public for viewing, as we have a wooden plaform between these cars for easier access to view. These cars consist of Two Box cars, Three Cabooses, and One Maint. of way box car. These three cabooses are from the railroads Pittsburgh and West Virginia, the Baltimore and Ohio, and The Pennsylvania railroads. The Maint. of Way Box car is from teh Erie Railroad, and our two box cars are from The Penn Central railroad and the Eria Lakawana railroad.

Our Pittsburgh and West Virginia caboose has a working coal stove that we fire up on weekends on cold days for guests to see it in working condition as a member of our staff is there to provide a tour through our cars.

New York - Wantagh Railroad Museum
Wantagh, NY - The Wantagh Museum resides in two structures, The Station and The “Jamaica” Railroad Car. The Station was built in 1885 and originally stood on Railroad Avenue, east of Wantagh Avenue. In 1966, The Station was moved to its current location to save it from demolition when the Wantagh Railroad service was expanded. After this move, The Station was restored to its 1904 appearance, and in 1982, the Wantagh Preservation Society opened the structure to the public as a museum.

North Carolina - Newton Depot Southeastern Narrow Gauge & Shortline Museum
Newton, NC - The railroad heritage of the southern United States is extremely rich and firmly rooted in our region’s business and personal identity. Known for its production of agriculture, textiles, timber, and furniture, our industrial legacy was built upon a backbone of steel rails and wooden ties. From the 1830's until the present day, these lines provided a critical path for passengers, freight, and materials required for commerce. Along these rails are also scattered memories- loved ones embarking upon a new adventure, the soldier hero returning from war, or perhaps a simple visit with favorite cousins.

As a tribute to this history, the Newton (NC) Depot Authority is establishing the Southeastern Narrow Gauge & Shortline Museum. This museum will house a collection of vintage railroad equipment that dates as far back as the era of Reconstruction, days when primitive iron rails endeavored to connect the cotton fields of lowland farms to the vast timber interests of the Appalachians.

Join us on this journey, as we endeavor to create a museum, a living testimony unlike none other east of the Mississippi River and south of the Mason-Dixon.

Ohio - Cincinnati Union Terminal
Cincinnati, OH - Cincinnati Union Terminal was a significant development in the history of Cincinnati transportation. One of the last great train stations built, Union Terminal is a Cincinnati icon and one of the most widely regarded examples of the Art Deco style. Since its opening in 1933, Union Terminal has had a long and storied history, from welcoming soldiers home from World War II to becoming the home of three museums, an OMNIMAX® Theater and the Cincinnati History Library and Archives.

After you pick your jaw up off the floor from admiring the largest half-dome in the western hemisphere, ask a member of guest services about the magical whispering fountains. Spend some time admiring the intricate details and stories of the Winold Reiss mosaics and visit Tower A, the original control tower of Union Terminal. Be sure to pick up a sweet treat in the Rookwood-tiled ice cream parlor before heading outside to enjoy it next to the fountain with a unique view of downtown Cincinnati.

Ohio - Dennison Depot Railroad Museum
Dennison, OH - During W.W.II the Dennison Depot was located on the National Railway Defense Route. It was the main stopping point on the route because it was the exact mid-point between Columbus and Pittsburgh. One evening, Lucille Nussdorfer sat waving good-bye to U.S. soldiers going off to war. She noticed that they seemed sad, so she organized a few other friends to start a GI canteen. The community response was so overwhelming that the Salvation Army soon had to take over. The small towns of Dennison and Uhrichsville served over 1.5 million soldiers during W.W.II. The community became so popular among the soldiers that it was called Dreamsville, USA.

You can visit this beautifully restored Museum today and feel what the G.I.'s felt during the war. Well over One Million Dollars has been spent on the restoration of our museum to preserve it for many generations to come. Join us today for an educational experience into the Past!
