The Richmond Railroad Museum is operated by the Old Dominion Chapter of the National Railway Historical Society, and is housed in the restored historic Southern Railway Station in Richmond. The museum contains many interesting exhibits relating to Virginia's history, including authentic fixtures and furnishings, a gift shop, and a gallery devoted exclusively to Richmond's largest HO scale model railroad. On view on the grounds are a real steam locomotive, baggage car and caboose, along with track cars, signals and other railroad artifacts. Tours are conducted by knowledgeable hosts.
