What a treat. What this museum lacks in operating equipment, it more than makes up for showing what life was like for workers, communities, passengers and the economy when railroads were the nation's dominant employers. The Wilmington Railroad Museum concentrates on the Atlantic Coast Line RR, which served seven states and was headquartered in Wilmington until 1960. Shortly afterwards it morphed into today's CSX. Adults will be fascinated at how people worked at different jobs in the railroad, and kids of all ages will love the large and extensive working model trains. Be sure to visit the caboose and of course the cab of the steam locomotive.
