North Carolina - 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.

North Carolina - the National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Inc.
Hamlet, NC - The National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Inc. was officially opened in 1976. The purpose of the museum is to create that time when railroads were the main source of long distance travel and passenger train service was at its zenith. Only by recapturing this past can we truly realize how far we've come since that time. In fact, at a time when artifacts of earlier eras should be treasured and preserved, we see them fast disappearing in our quest for more technological advances. It is more important ever to become aware of our beginnings so we can better understand the present and chart more surely our future course.

The museum provides a source of entertainment as well as a place for learning about the history of railroading, the history of Hamlet and the history of Richmond County. A must-see spot for railroad buffs, historians, students, out-of-towners and local residents. Visitors are guaranteed to leave with a new outlook on trains and a deeper understanding of the history that surrounds them.
