The exhibits at the National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame include photographs and maps, displays, a model railroad layout, and four pieces of rolling stock. The museum is located in the old Seaboard Air Line (SAL) Railway’s depot. It was built in 1900 and was the home of the North Carolina Division of SAL. A prime example of Victorian architecture, it is one of the most photographed stations in the eastern United States and is representative of the structures of that era.
The station is under renovation, but the museum has moved to a temporary location on Hamlet Avenue in Hamlet, North Carolina. It is open by appointment only. Call the City of Hamlet at (910) 582-2651. Admission is free.View Larger Map
