I want to compile a list of railroad attractions, museums, excursions, etc. as a resource for people visiting this forum. Once compiled, the topic will remain as a sticky at the top of the forum. Please sumbit your suggestions in this thread- the name of the attraction and the web site is all we need. Tourist railroads, model railroad clubs and railroad museums only, pelase.

I believe the South Jersey Railroad Museum in Tuckahoe has closed. Good list regardless though.

Please add our facility in Pemberton Township. It is the Pemberton Township Historic Trust. We have ten pieces of rolling stock on about 600 feet of track. Our museum is in the restored PRR North Pemberton rail station. The railbed underwent the conversion to trail so you can walk between the equipment and get an up close look at our items. The trail is 1.5 miles long and ends in Birmingham. We also restored the section house in 2000 to it's last configuration. We are also the owners of the ground next door where the yard was. In the yard we have dug out the ash pit, found the walls of the turntable pit and unearthed the footings for the freight house. We also have a new web site www.pthtrust.org. The site is relatively new so there isn't much up there. Add to that the fact that our administrator has been very ill so excuse us that we have some old information up there. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me.
