Located on the site of Southern Railway’s former steam locomotive repair facility Spencer Shops, this is where locomotives that hauled Southern’s passenger trains and freight trains filled with North Carolina furniture, textiles, tobacco, and produce were serviced from 1896 to the late 1970’s. Up to 3,000 people once worked here but today visitors can see an authentic train depot, antique automobiles, and a roundhouse with 25 locomotives.
