Amtrak’s Exhibit Train is making a stop at the Museum of the American Railroad in Frisco on Saturday and Sunday before heading to the Gulf Coast.
The specially outfitted passenger train, which features interactive exhibits, will be open for guests at MAR from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday. Admission is free.
The 510-foot long streamliner celebrates the history and romance of train travel, as well as Amtrak’s 45-year history.
Two specially painted locomotives that span 40 years of technology and arrayed in an historic Amtrak paint scheme lead the Exhibit Train, which includes four display cars (former baggage cars) that have been renovated and transformed into exhibit space. Information on major events and achievements covering more than four decades of company history are shown. At the end of the train, in a reconfigured Amfleet Café car, visitors may browse the gift shop.
