    Hello all,

    I'll be travelling from Denver, CO to Canton, Il over T-day. Going via I-80. Any train museums, open houses, etc. worth stopping at along the way?? Could also go I-70 if worthwhile.

    TIA!

    There's always Kenefick Park in Omaha off of I-80. Big Boy and Centennial on display.

    My first visit chronicled here.

    It's a little tricky to find, but is pretty cool. Depending on your driving schedule, the timing can be difficult from Denver, too. The park closes at 4:00 PM, I believe.

    The Union Pacific Yard in North Platte, Nebraska is along the way for you. The have the overlook tower at Bailey yard. It is really quite a sight to be able to see all that action in one place. Then is you want to stay OFF the interstate for a while, US30 stays pretty close to the UP main for a lot of miles.
