Railroad Museum of Oklahoma
Enid, OK 73701
The Railroad Museum of Oklahoma in Enid features one of the largest collections of railroad material in the United States. The museum is housed in an historic freight depot from the 1920s which was donated by the Santa Fe Railroad Company and had been vacant for 25 years until restoration began in the late 1980s. It is a large space with 360 windows that is full of historical artifacts. The Railroad Museum of Oklahoma has the distinction of being one of the only railroad museums in the country to conduct all of their caboose excursions over the rails.
Exhibits inside the museum include over 1,000 pieces of dining car china and silver service from passenger trains of the past, maps depicting various railroad lines, railroad paintings, depot clocks, locks, keys and a functioning telegraph system with 47 components. A giant O-scale layout featuring circus trains and related equipment is a popular attraction for young and old alike. The model railroad room includes HO-gauge and N-gauge layouts. There are also steam and diesel engine bells, railroader memorabilia and passenger train stepboxes from various Oklahoma railroads.
