National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Inc.
Address: 2 Main Street, Hamlet, NORTH_CAROLINA, 28345 USA. Tel.: N/A Toll Free:
The National Railroad Museum and Hall of Fame, Inc. was officially opened in 1976. It is located in the old Seaboard Air Line Railway's depot at the crossing of SAL predecessors. Of the original eight diamonds, only one remains. The purpose of the museum is to create that time when railroads were the main source of long distance travel and passenger train service was at its zenith. Only by recapturing this past can we truly realize how far we've come since that time. In fact, at a time when artifacts of earlier eras should be treasured and preserved, we see them fast disappearing in our quest for more technological advances. It is more important ever to become aware of our beginnings so we can better understand the present and chart more surely our future course.
