All aboard!  If you love trains, you will love Memphis Train Day at the Memphis Railroad and Trolley Museum. Admission is free to the day-long event. This year's event is scheduled for Saturday, June 4 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. The museum is located inside the Central Station in the South Main District of downtown Memphis.   

Visitors will be able to tour the museum and check out the history of trains in the Mid-South. They will also get the chance to take in some extra special tours set up just for the day. Locomotives will be on display outside the museum from the Canadian National Railway and R.J. Corman Railroad Group. Guests can walk through the cab of each locomotive to get a feel for what it's like inside. Visitors will also get a chance to go inside a passenger car provided by the Iowa Pacific Railroad. Other smaller support vehicles will also be on display.
