The museum has a small collection of railroad equipment including a former Pennsylvania Railroad P-70B, a New Haven RDC, a former New York Central Caboose, and a New Haven Boxcar. location near Battleship Cove in Fall River, Massachusetts.

The museum saw its height of popularity during the 1990s through the early 2000s, seeing 45 visitors a day.[2] After around 2009, admissions declined to around five people per day, and the museum had trouble paying the bills.[2] The museum closed in September 2016, after operating for 30 seasons.[2]
