Click here and join me on another micro adventure as I explore the Heart of Dixie train museum and so much more!
My latest rural exploration micro adventure has it all – beautiful countrysides, old barns, vacant, abandoned and uninhabited stuff – but you decide that! But then I come up on the unexpected train graveyard/museum! It’s the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum!
I’m calling this one Unexpected Find in Shelby County, Alabama? Train Graveyard/Museum? Rural Exploration Ep – 32!
This one has your usual suspects – old barns, beautiful countrysides, rural landscapes. You can decide if they are abandoned, uninhabited or just vacant or lived in!
But the unexpected find is the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum. It was waaay more than expected! The Heart of Dixie Railroad museum is located in Calera, Alabama in Shelby County just outside of Birmingham. The Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum has a ton of old cars to see and photograph.
As per the Heart of Dixie railroad museum website:
As the official railroad museum of the state of Alabama our museum features operating standard gauge and narrow gauge trains, two restored depots, an indoor collection of railroad artifacts and memorabilia, and an outdoor collection of railroad cars, locomotives, and cabooses. Our exhibits, operating railroads, and educational programs function as both a unique means of tourism and recreation, and also a way to preserve the rich history of Alabama and our nation.
So I hope you like my latest Rural Exploration micro adventure that’s all about the usual suspects and this time the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum/Graveyard!
