Atchison Rail Museum

Atchison Rail Museum Review

Next door to a restored Santa Fe Depot, this museum was founded by a group of rail enthusiasts during the late 1980s. Today they operate the museum's miniature railroad on a volunteer basis. The extensive collection of rail cars, locomotives, and rolling stocks—all from the old Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad—are are kept outdoors and open for viewing on weekends during the summer. Collection highlights include the Santa Fe 789-class steam locomotive No. 811 and the Missouri Pacific M of W dining car.
