Comments/Directions:
The Ironhorse Central Railroad Museum is located in Chisago City, MN and has been in this present location since 1966. Richard and Robert Thompson and Doug Alexander started back in the 1950's collecting memorabilia, taking photo's and going on MRA fan trips. They purchased engine # 4 in 1963 and had it stored until 1966 when it was moved to the present location. Track construction was started that year and in 1984 the circle was completed and a final spike ceremony was held celebrating the event. A documentary called "Ironhorse" was filmed from 1983 to 1984 and has been featured on television multiple times. In those years we had many newspaper articles and were shown on local news programs. We have almost a mile of track in a circle so we can run our equipment around. We have over 20 pieces of equipment. We are still out in the country so we have plenty of scenic areas for nice photo's. We have a 1895 Saint Paul And Duluth Railroad depot that is the center of focus in our museum. The depot is where most of the collection of railroad artifacts are located. Displays are changed out frequently. Steam ups are posted on the website. We are open June 1st to September 30th Fridays and Saturdays from 10 to 5 and offer Bumblebee rides on Friday and Diesel excursions on Saturdays.(see Website)
