North Carolina Transportation Museum

North Carolina Transportation Museum

The North Carolina Transportation Museum at Historic Spencer Shops is located on the site of what was once Southern Railway Company's largest steam locomotive servicing facility. Begun in 1896 at a point roughly half-way between Washington and Atlanta, Spencer Shops and the town of Spencer, NC, were both named for Samuel Spencer, the first President of Southern Railway. It now houses examples of a variety of forms of transportation, including an antique automobile exhibit, and a 120,000 square foot locomotive roundhouse that has recently undergone a major restoration.
