Fall Amtrak Vacation Trip 2004:
The Galesburg Railroad Museum
Tuesday, September 28th, 2004

   As I headed back to the Galesburg Amtrak Station to await the arrival of Train #6 - The California Zephyr,
I took some time to check out a few of the exhibits at the Galesburg Railroad Museum.


This new building was under construction, it is owned by the museum and looks
very sharp! It will house museum pieces when it's completed.

Chicago, Burlington & Quincy 4-6-4 Steamer #3006 is the largest piece at the
museum. It was built by the Baldwin Locomotive Works in 1930.

A CB&Q Railway Post Office Car on display at the museum.

CB&Q Caboose #13501, was built in 1930, eventually donated to the museum
by the Burlington Northern Railroad and now sits on display in it's original paint scheme.
   This museum is a must if you're a fan of the Burlington Route! It is located in Galesburg next door to the Amtrak Station on South Seminary Street. Check out their web site below for lots more information about the displays shown above and some of the other great things this museum and it's volunteers are doing to preserve railroading in the Midwest!
