North Carolina Transportation Museum

This family-friendly attraction is filled with interesting exhibits and special events. Four large exhibit buildings represent the remaining structures of the historic Spencer Shops, once Southern Railroad's largest steam locomotive repair facility on the east coast. The museum is a source of education and fun for the young and old. There's plenty to see and do from train rides to scenic excursions, special visits from Thomas the Train and more.
