The Arizona Railway Museum is a community effort dedicated to the acquisition, restoration, preservation and display of equipment, artifacts and mementos related primarily to the past and present railways of Arizona and the Southwest. From logging and mining to the freight terminals in Phoenix and Tucson, railroads have played a major role in the economic and social development of Arizona.

The photo above was taken on National Train Day 2009. Trains pictured here may or may not be accessible during regular season visits to the museum.
