Working Safely on the Railroad

Children will love discovering the Working Safely on the Railroad exhibit, which uses previously unseen railroad items from the Museum's artifact and archival collections to promote safe working and traveling conditions. This is an interactive exhibit that focuses on the role Railroad Unions played in the development of safety and kids of all ages can learn railroad signals and other valuable safety information!

Located in the Jolley Education Center, this new exhibit has been created in conjunction with the North American Railroad Foundation. For more information, contact 770.427.2117, ext 3174 or email
