ABOUT US

The mission of the Great Plains Transportation Museum is to preserve and convey the unique history of railroading in the Great Plains through acquisition, restoration, research, exhibition, and education.

The Great Plains Transportation Museum (GPTM) displays a wide assortment of railroad equipment. 
Our two largest displays are Santa Fe steam locomotive #3768 and Santa Fe FP45 diesel #93.

These locomotives are unique in our collection in that they represent the last class of

passenger locomotives that were built for the Santa Fe in their respective eras. 


Indoor exhibits include railroad prints, signs, lanterns, tools, and other artifacts including a mock-up mechanical stoker used for training steam locomotive personnel. We invite you to visit the Great Plains Transportation Museum to learn more about these and many other historical pieces and displays.
