Named to the National Register of Historic Places on Dec. 18, 2015, the Railroad Museum of Oklahoma houses one of the largest collections of railroad material in the United States. Exhibits 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, steam engine bells, locks, keys, and a functioning telegraph system. 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.
Nine authentic cabooses are on display from various railroads that have served Enid, along with motor cars, five different kinds of box cars, a three dome tank car, a Frisco 1519 Steam Engine, an former Amtrak lounge car that is now used as a dinner car, traveling post office car, car krane, and a 50 ton G.E. switcher locomotive that is still being used to move the rolling stock around on the museum tracks. Two types of flatcars round out our collection of vintage freight cars.
Reference libraries of books, photos, videotapes, railroad money, postcards of depots all over the US, and much more are also on site. We welcome bus tours and can arrange catered dinners for up to 100 people.
