The Museum Displays seek to tell the story of railroads in the central Virginia area over the past 150 years through artifacts, equipment, paper memorabilia, maps and photographs displayed in the FREIGHT ROOM and the STATION MASTERS OFFICE. The story is also told with restored railroad rolling stock on track adjacent to the museum building.
