  • Lots to see here. Inside all sorts of memorabilia from the railroad days. Outside engines, cars, and equipment from the days when railroads was how most everyone traveled.  more »
  • Great for train enthusiasts --- and normal tourists too! It's next door to the Rt 66 Motheroad museum so no excuses not to visit.  more »
  • A small museum that does not look like much but that's worth the look. In addition, it is free and is just off route 66 Museum.

  • Nice little railroad museum giving some history. Our kids enjoyed seeing the older engines and train cars outside. The architecture of the Harvey House was nice to explore as well as it is a historic building.
  • A fun view into the deep rooted Barstow railroad history. Surprisingly complete inside and out with museum worthy artifacts, locomotives, rail cars and a fun little gift shop. For those who enjoy rail history, you will definitely enjoy this detour on your trip.
  • Cool historical items and friendly staff. They even opened one of the trains outside to let my kids go in.
  • Lots of train memorabilia and pictures. All volunteer workforce prevents it from being open but 3 days a week.
  • Cool little place to see some old railway engines. The big engines are outside and free to walk around. The old train station is nice for some pics. Friendly staff that are excited to share the local history. Worth a quick detour if trains and history is your thing.
