Railroad Museum Considers Relocating to Nebraska City
David Fachman, president of the Nebraska Railroad Museum, said the board is considering Nebraska City as a new location.
A sign on the door at the Fremont-based attraction says it is closed and will re-open in Nebraska City, but Fachman said the posting is just a notice that the board is exploring its options.
Fachman: "The Nebraska Railroad Museum feels it's time for a change in its 28-year history. We feel whatever location we choose will have a better understanding of our goal and our mission than our present location."
He said the museum not only wants to showcase railroad artifacts like tickets, but rolling stock such as box cars, baggage cars and locomotives. He said they are looking for room to grow.
An excursion train operated between Fremont and Hooper for 28 years. A separate entity, the Fremont Dinner Train, has been moved to Baldwin, Kan.
