The Illinois Railway Museum has the largest collection of historic railway equipment in America.
The main museum campus in Union, Illinois features more than twenty structures spread out across 100 acres of land. These include exhibit buildings which house much of the museum’s collection of trains as well as historic structures like the 1851 East Union Depot, Spaulding Tower, the Schroeder Mercantile Store, and the Central Diner. Plan on spending the day: from horse-drawn streetcars to million-pound steam locomotives, from sleek streamliners to workaday boxcars, there’s a LOT to see!
