Railroad Museum

As the nostalgia of the echoing whistle heard across a rural valley and the memories of small town depots fade, we endeavor to keep the spirit of railroading alive and vibrant in the minds of future generations.

The St. Marys Railroad Museum is a product of St. Marys Little Theatre, a 501c3 nonprofit organization run by volunteers. The Museum is located in Theatre by the Trax, an old railroad repair building brought to life through the kind donations of our benefactors and the tireless work of our volunteers. The building also serves as the Depot for St. Marys Express Train Excursions.
