Welcome to the New Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco, Texas! Minimize
Below are five computer generated images of the new museum in Frisco.  Using existing CGI creations of vintage rolling stock and simplified structures, we are able to provide exciting visions of the museum facility (train shed not shown for viewing purposes).  These views represent the museum's 25-year build-out plan that will become one of North Texas' premiere destinations for transportation history and technology.
