How would you like to take your children or grandchildren for a ride on a real passenger train, visit a red caboose or an authentic dining car, or even a Pullman car that once ferried earlier generations across the country?

Come spend an afternoon at the South Carolina Railroad Museum. There's something for everyone! Come see freight cars, passenger cars, and even a real steam engine on display.

And best of all, you can ride the train!
