A stop for railroad enthusiasts

This was a quick stop for us. A must for those interested in railroads or Lincoln in Gettysburg. Located just a block off of the square.

Walked in and was immediately given a complete run down of everything that happened there. The lady was a walking encyclopedia !

We stopped in on the way by since it was the same place Lincoln arrived & departed from when he came to town to present his address. The woman inside was helpful but seemed rushed. The building is nice, but the museum is mostly pictures.

A few items in the museum. It is also a great place to get directions and ask for info. The staff was very helpful and helped me map out my stops.

I'm absolutely THRILLED that they are repainting the station after so many years of the horrid mustard color. A very nice little museum with knowledgeable employees.

Great place if you love train history. It's in one of the historic buildings on the corner. It is free and you can make a small donation to keep it going. Well worth it!
