Chandler, Arizona – November 2022 – Arizona Railway Museum

The Arizona Railway Museum is located in the Phoenix suburb of Chandler. While there are museums in the country that have larger collections, this museum’s is extensive enough to make the trip worthwhile.

The day we chose to go was an open house, with numerous railroad enthusiast groups onsite.

The rolling stock collection is well preserved or restored.

The Southern Pacific Railroad Locomotive 2562 is on the National Historic Registry.

Unusual for many railroad museum, the interiors are also in great shape. Since most came from the Southern Pacific or the Santa Fe they have the southwest look to them.

The Arizona Railway Museum is a great stop for more than train enthusiasts.
