Mission Statement

The Heart of Dixie, Official Railroad Museum for the State of Alabama, is dedicated to preserving the golden age of railroading.

Description

All Aboard! The Heart of Dixie is a not-for-profit group of volunteers who share a love of railroading. It was organized in 1963 as a chapter of the National Railway Historical Society and is dedicated to the preservation and operation of historically significant railway equipment. Visitors see railroad artifacts and memorabilia in a restored depot. Locomotives, railcars and signals are displayed in a living monument to railroad history. The golden age of railroads and the rich heritage of the people who built and operated them become real as visitors ride the train along six miles of restored L&N track. All revenues from passenger fares, merchandise sales, and donations are used for restoration projects and railroad operations. Membership is available to anyone interested in supporting the museum either financially or through participation in museum and railroad operations. No previous railroad experience necessary!
