  • About Us

    The Southeastern Railway Museum occupies a 35-acre site in Duluth, Georgia, in northeast suburban Atlanta. In operation since 1970, SRM features about 90 items of rolling stock including historic Pullman cars and classic steam locomotives. Museum hours vary seasonally, please see hours for our current schedule. For details about our special events, please see our Events Calendar.

    Ride in restored cabooses behind restored antique 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.

    Mission

    The mission of the Southeastern Railway Museum is to provide an educational atmosphere that will vividly bring to life the cultural, technological and historical importance of transportation to our region. This is accomplished through the preservation, conservation and display of publications, memorabilia and equipment; operation of historic equipment; and the portrayal of the lives of those people who created and provided that transportation.

    Board of Trustees

     The museum is lead by a self-perpetuating board of trustees with members from the community as well as from the Atlanta Chapter NRHS Inc.
    The members are:

    Member Affiliation
    Rick Hewatt, Chairperson Atlanta Checker Cab
    Rich Krishak MARTA
    Chris Wilson FisherBroyles, LLP
    Chris Braun KeyWorth Bank
    John Pollock Atlanta Chapter NRHS Inc.
    Scott Sadow Atlanta Chapter NRHS Inc.
    Cognizant Technology Solutions
    Chuck Hardt Atlanta Chapter NRHS Inc.

    Kids of all ages will love this wonderful little museum, which features a better collection of trains than most rail yards do. Here you can tour passenger coaches, a business car, an early refrigerator car, and both a diner and a WWII troop kitchen. Climb aboard and explore the vintage steam locomotives, cabooses and old wooden freight cars from the early days of rail transport.

      “Great for train lovers of all ages!”
      Our 2 year old grandson is a train fanatic due to the Thomas series. We have taken him to this museum twice in the past two months since he loves it so much. He is throughly enthralled by all of full size trains you can explore, as well as all of the models and artifacts on display. The train store is chock full if everything train related you could think of. The ride on the full size train is short, but our grandson still loved it. Some days there is a kiddie train ride too. Great staff and reasonable prices make for a great visit too.
