Southeastern Railroad Museum

My son went out here with a friend from scouts and participated in their Railroading Merit Badge program. While they were doing that, I took the time and toured the facility. The museum is located in Duluth on Buford Hwy just north of Pleasant Hill Rd. It's a great place to spend an afternoon (though there are is no food, so bring a lunch). You can even ride one of the smaller trains as well as see freight trains go by up close. They're working on installing a miniature train that was donated from the Birmingham Zoo. You can see it on display in the main building and you can see where they're laying tracks outside as well. We were told that they can ALWAYS use help by scouts looking for service projects (or other groups). My son has taken this information and filed it to be mentioned to his patrol later.
