There’s A Little-Known, Fascinating Train Park In Wyoming And You’ll Want To Visit
The railroad helped build the West, and there’s an incredible museum in Wyoming dedicated to preserving the history of the railcars that carried passengers through the country in our earliest days. When you visit this train park in Wyoming, you’ll be transported to the past.
The Douglas Railroad Interpretive Center is the coolest spot in Wyoming for those who love railways.
You can find this super cool spot at 121 Brownfield Rd., Douglas, WY 82633
Inside the museum, you'll find replica railways and plenty of information about the trails that helped build the West!
Throughout the park, you'll find restored vintage locomotives and train cars.
This steam locomotive is enormous, and you'll really feel the power of the rails when you stand next to it and realize how much smaller you are than the wheels.
The Silver Salver dining car originally ran between Chicago and Minneapolis.
When you visit, you'll learn why these expensive, hard to manage cars never turned a profit and proved to be more trouble than they were worth.
Even though they were a lot of work for the rail company, a meal in a moving train is a timeless experience.
Can you guess how this car was used?
As you may be able to tell from the airy construction, these cars were used to ship livestock! Cattle, swine, and horses made their way out west to help create the ranches that we have today.
Each of the park's vintage trains is a tribute to days gone by.
You'll have an incredible time strolling through the train cars and imaging yourself taking an old-fashioned train ride across the country.
If you can’t get enough of railroads, railways, and train themed attractions, take your family on this incredible
