The Old Colony & Fall River Railroad Museum is a small railroad museum located in Fall River Massachusetts. The Old Colony and Fall River Railroad operated from 1854 to 1863, and later as part of the extensive Old Colony Railroad system. The museum is located directly across from the former Fall River Line Terminal, part of the Old Colony's "boat train" service between Boston and New York City.
The museum has a small collection of railroad equipment including a former Pennsylvania Railroad P-70B, a New Haven RDC, a former New York Central Caboose, and a New Haven Boxcar. location near Battleship Cove in Fall River, Massachusetts.
The museum saw its height of popularity during the 1990s through the early 2000s, seeing 45 visitors a day. After around 2009, admissions declined to around five people per day, and the museum had trouble paying the bills. The museum closed in September 2016, after operating for 30 seasons.
