In 1974, the last remaining vehicle of the Middleburgh and Schoharie Railroad was transported to Depot Lane from the Middleburgh flats.¬† The museum also includes a 1920 scale model of buildings, cars and terrain of the area served by the Middleburgh and Schoharie Railroad…. The museum contains items pertinent to the operation of a railroad, particularly those connected with the SVRR and the Delaware and Hudson R.R. There are several rail cars on the premises, including an historic¬† 1917 D&H caboose, and a 1891 combine from the Middleburgh & Schoharie Railroad, which have been restored. You can also view old photos of the yard, buildings and steam engines from the SVRR and the Middleburgh & Schoharie Railroad, which connected to our line. Both ran thru the valley and met the D&H line to Albany. The buildings, which have not been in use since the demise of the railroad, consist of a station house, freight house/engine house, weigh station, creamery and old mill.

Most rail yards did not preserve these artifacts, and the few that are still around are disappearing at an alarming rate. Rail fans all over this country are scrambling to record these structures in photos, but we are determined to maintain and save our precious history. This site is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. HISTORY IS A PHYSICAL PLACE
