This interactive museum features a model train and outdoor train exhibits.
Originally, the town of Crewe was planned and built by the Norfolk and Western railroad in 1888. The town was named after a large railroad town in Crewe, England. This museum is run and supported by volunteers that were former employees of the Norfolk and Western Railways. The Crewe Railroad Museum is open Friday & Saturday from 10 am - 4 pm, and Sunday from 12 pm - 4 pm. It is located in the town's depot building.
The indoor museum is full of photos and railway artifacts like a baggage cart and other railroad artifacts. There is a large model railroad that is a must-see for all visitors. Explore the outside to see a diesel, steam, and freight locomotive, plus passenger rolling stock. Visitors can walk through some of the trains, climb on a diesel engine, a caboose, and steam engine #606. The Crewe Railroad Museum is adjacent to an active rail yard and park. Admission is free; however, donations are welcomed and appreciated.
