How would you like to take your children or grandchildren for a ride on a real passenger train, visit a red caboose, an authentic dining car or even a Pullman car that once ferried earlier generations across the country? Come spend an afternoon at the South Carolina Railroad Museum. There’s something for everyone. Come see freight cars, passenger cars and even a real steam engine on display. And best of all, you can ride the train. We’re just minutes from the Interstate, so come join in the fun at the South Carolina Railroad Museum, the official railroad museum of the state.
Located minutes off I-77, the South Carolina Railroad Museum is the biggest attraction in Fairfield County. Since 1973 the museum has been collecting various types of freight and passenger cars as well as steam locomotive #44 which one belonged to the Hampton and Branchville Railroad. There are also cabooses, freight cars and diesel engines from CSX and Norfolk Southern.
