I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them. The BNSF has come to dominate Northwest Railroading in the 21st century.

Medina Railroad Museum

Located in the old New York Central freight depot in Medina, NY, the Medina RR Museum is one of the largest freight depot museums in the country. The building itself was built in 1905-06, and is one of the largest (301ft. by 34ft.), last surviving wooden freight depots in the United States. Their air-conditioned building features the largest collection of such artifacts and memorabilia known to exist under one roof.
