Rowan Railroad Runaway: The NC Transportation Museum Sweepstakes

The North Carolina Transportation Museum in Rowan County is the home of transportation history and fun! Located on the grounds of what was once Southern Railway’s largest steam locomotive repair facility in the Southeast, the museum is now home to transportation exhibits of all kinds. Visit antique automobiles at “Bumper to Bumper” and view traveling and temporary exhibits, like “NC in WWI” in “Wagons, Wheels & Wings.” Experience days of the working railroad repair shop in the restored 1924 Robert Julian Roundhouse – the largest remaining structure of its type in North America. The museum features 13 buildings, including exhibits on early transportation, automotive, aviation, and one of the best collections of railroad equipment anywhere. During your trip, enjoy a 25-minute narrated train ride of the 60-acre site pulled by an antique diesel engine, and so much more.
