Cast Away on New Adventures in Wilmington & Island Beaches
Burlington’s former engine house was built in the 1800s to provide space for maintenance on train engines. Company Shops Station is now Alamance County’s passenger station. The 18,000-square-foot facility also houses the NC Railroad Company’s Whistlestop Exhibit. This exhibit includes a model of Company Shops (as Burlington was once known), scenes of life in the late 1800s, steam and diesel train engines coming through the engine house, murals, and more.
