Louisiana - Dequincy Railroad Museum & 1923 Kansas City Southern Depot
Dequincy, LA - Dequincy Railroad Museum & 1923 Kansas City Southern Depot

The DeQuincyRailroad Museum is a non-profit corporation established in 1974 whose mission is to acquire, preserve, and display railroad artifacts of a bygone era and to heighten public awareness of the role of the railroad industry in our area as well the region, state, and country. Housed in the 1923 Kansas City Southern Depot, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the museum has on display a large and varied collection of railroad memorabilia, including a restored 1913 steam locomotive, a 1947 passenger coach, and two vintage cabooses. Also on display are many model trains and an extensive collection of Gauge 1 model steam and diesel engines.

Because DeQuincy has always been a railroad town, railroading continues to play a major role in our economic, social, and civic lives. Consequently, many citizens of our community and surrounding area are interested in railroading and are collectors of railroad artifacts and memorabilia. The majority of these railroad buffs are retired railroad families who have generously donated their railroad collections and artifacts to the museum. The museum is housed in the 1923 Kansas City Southern Railroad Depot which has been exquisitely restored to its former grandeur. The depot is one of the most outstanding examples of the Mission Revival style of architecture in the South. The facility includes meeting rooms for public functions and may be rented for private events as well.

Maryland - Friends of President Street Station
Baltimore, MD - The historic 1849 President Street Station, the oldest big city train station in America, has been restored in 1997 after a 15-year long battle to serve as the Baltimore Civil War Museum. The terminal of the old Philadelphia, Wilmington & Baltimore Railroad was later absorbed into the Pennsylvania Railroad. Construction was supervised by Isaac Ridgway Trimble, later a Confederate major general who participated in the famed Pickett's Charge at Gettysburg. Longtime head of the line during the 1850s and 60s was President Samuel Morse Felton who notified detective Alan Pinkerton of the existence of an assasination plot against President Abraham Lincoln on his way to his inaguration in Washington in February 1861, causing Lincoln to re-route his trip and pass through Baltimore at night. Several months later the station was also the site of the "First Bloodshed of the Civil War" on Friday, April 19, 1861 as the 6th Massachusetts volunteer militia regiment accompanied by the 26th and 27th Pennsylvania regiments ("The Washington Brigade") were attacked while attempting to pass through to get to the Nation's Capital for its defense after the earlier firing on Fort Sumter and the subsequent call by the President for 75,000 volunteers to suppress the rebellion. The Baltimore Civil War Museum has displays and multi-media presentations regarding the railroad history, unique architecture of the station, as an Underground Railroad escape route and its Civil War heritage with the occupation of Baltimore and the state. It is on the National Register of Historic Places and is operated by the Maryland Historical Society (website: http://www.mdhs.org) and supported by the Friends of President Street Station, Inc. The PSS is also on the list of the Maryland Civil War Trails program. The site is located at 601 South President Street; Baltimore, MD
