All Aboard! Trains In Douglas

If you ever find yourself in Douglas, Wyoming, be sure to stop by Locomotive Park, home to the community’s railroad museum and visitors’ center.

The 1886 era depot serves as the visitors center while the park hosts an assortment of rail cars including a dining car, sleeper, caboose and locomotive.

You can go inside most but there are a couple you have to just admire from the outside. Isn’t this lovely?

The dining car was my favorite.

I sort of expected to find Louis Armstrong playing his horn in the corner.

The town mascot is a jackalope. You’ll find one of their jackalope statues right here!

This museum is free but donations are accepted. There are tables here and some shade, creating a fun atmosphere for a picnic. It’s a great place for adults and train loving kiddos alike!

  1. Love this. I rode on an old train twice. They used to give train rides here in the Fall. The whole trip took an hour near back roads and wooded areas where we could see the beautiful foliage. The train rocked from side to side and takes a little getting used to. On one of the trips they staged a train robbery with two masked bandits. Sadly, the train is too worn out now and is out of commission.
