This free attraction has the only Challenger 3900 series steam locomotive on public display in the world. Number 3977 is not only on display, you can actually climb up and get the engineer’s view before you walk through a series of old rail cars, including a mail car and a caboose, that are filled with old railroad memorabilia from the time when trains were America’s main mode of transportation.
In addition to the 3900 series is Unit 6922. The 6900 series diesel locomotives were the largest ever made.
It’s not just the locomotives and rail cars, you’ll also find the old Hershey, NE rail depot that also has historic railroad artifacts inside.
