After enjoying a hearty breakfast at one of Douglas’ many restaurants, begin the day
at the Douglas Railroad Museum and Visitor Center, housed in the historic
FE & MV Railroad Passenger Depot. The historic depot was updated in 2018 and today features exhibits highlighting Douglas and the region’s railroad history.
The building is listed on the National Historic Register
and is surrounded by seven historic railcars including the Chicago Burlington and
Quincy Railroad 4-8-4 Steam Locomotive #5633. Visitors are invited to climb aboard many of the rail cars including a day coach, a dining car and a new caboose exhibit.
Ask to see the model train on display in the back room!
