Location: Colfax,WI
The Colfax Railroad Museum will be open during the convention. We are about an hour east of Jackson Street roundhouse, about 10 miles north of I-94. If you are interested in railroad china, we have the largest public display of dining car china in the world, along with a tremendous display of railroad artifacts, the oldest standard gauge mail car (Omaha Route) and over a dozen other pieces of rolling stock. Check out our website at www.colfaxrrmuseum.org or call us at 715-962-2076.
