The Southeastern Railway Museum (SRM) occupies a 35-acre site in Duluth, Georgia, in northeast suburban Atlanta. We’ve been on our current site since 1999. In operation since 1970, SRM features about 90 items of rolling stock including historic Pullman cars, classic diesel & steam locomotives, freight cars, even maintenance of way cars. 

Ride in restored cabooses behind antique diesel locomotives, stand next to the massive driving wheels of the locomotive that pulled passenger trains to Key West on the “railroad that went to sea,” tour the business car that helped bring the Olympics to Atlanta, pose on the platform of the private car once used by President Warren G. Harding, and see just how green Southern Railway green can be as you walk the length of the diesel-electric locomotive that powered the last Crescent before AMTRAK assumed control of the famous train.

SRM is operated by a community-based board as a separate 501(c)3 nonprofit organization of the Atlanta Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society . The Museum receives operating funds from grants, donations, the support of sponsors, and gate receipts.

During the 2000 state legislative session, the museum was recognized as Georgia’s Official Transportation History Museum in recognition of the broad array of transportation history that the museum preserves, exhibits, and interprets.  

We’re open 10a-5p Thursday – Saturday, and Noon to 5p on Sunday. More information (directions, street address, hours, admission) is available on the plan your visit page.


The Southeastern Railway Museum provides an educational atmosphere that vividly brings to life the cultural, technological, and historical importance of railroads and land transportation to our region.
