  • Want to learn more about electrical railroads, then, this is the place. The museum is located downtown Plano next to the Interurban railway that goes to Dallas and Waco.  more »
  • A gem in the heart of downtown Plano. The exhibit inside the building was a pleasant surprise. And it's all free. Combine it with a walk through downtown Plano.  more »

  • Small museum nothing like big museums with fancy world renowned displays. It is however charming and takes you back to the days of rail service inside City of Dallas and it's neighboring communities. Electric trains long before Tesla dotted the then yet to be built tollways. There are displays for kids and adults to explain how electricity work and how it's applied to trains. An old train car that visitors can climb aboard and experience what it was like inside one. I would not believe there were electric trains serving Dallas, Plano etc if I didn't see this. Perfect for history buff and a must for train buffs. Great for all ages.
  • The staff are incredibly knowledgeable, funny and personable. Great historic outing right in Plano
