The Museum that Moves You

Located on the site of what was once Southern Railway Company's largest steam locomotive servicing facility, home of most of the buildings standing when the facility was finally closed, including one of the largest remaining still functioning roundhouses and turntables, now the home of a very extensive collection of locomotives and rolling stock several of which are available for riding during 25 minute train rides touring the 57 acre facility, plus a growing collection of other forms of NC transportation, this museum is well worth a visit for trainiacs and non-trainiacs alike.

Note: Save your train ride tickets. They can be used for discounts at several local eateries and the full service model railroad store right across the street from the museum, the Little Choo Choo Shop: http://www.littlechoochooshop.com/, which is also the closest model train store to Mocksville.

A few blocks from the adjoining the city of Salisbury, NC, a half hour drive from Mocksville, NC, and a few minutes drive from the nearest Amtrak station in downtown Salisbury, it is easy to get to for visitors in the area.
