Georgia State Transportation History Museum

Southeastern Railway MuseumSoutheastern Railway Museum

Savannah, Georgia

Adopted in 1996

The Southeastern Railway Museum occupies a 30-acre site in Duluth, Georgia, in northeast suburban Atlanta. Now in its 31st year, SRM features about 90 items of rolling stock including historic Pullman cars and classic steam locomotives.

Ride in restored cabooses behind steam or diesel locomotives, stand next to the massive driving wheels of the locomotive that once 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 ran the point on the last Crescent before AMTRAK assumed control of the famous train.
