The museum has a library with some history of trains, a collection of railroad material including the largest collection of Tennessee Central Railway artifacts to be found.

The museum also has a collection of several antique trains including passenger cars, cabooses, freight cars and locomotives. Tennessee Central Railway- old train The passenger trains typically have air conditioned coaches and large sightseeing windows. The seats are comfortable too.
