Dedicated to the preservation of Bradford, Ohio’s railroad heritage, the railroad was once a significant part of Bradford’s economy, employing many who manned the trains, worked in the switching yards and in the roundhouse where steam locomotives were kept and serviced between runs.
The museum has restored Bradford’s former Pennsylvania Railroad BF interlocking tower and opened a museum in the former bank building. The museum contains photos and displays that will allow the visitor to journey through Bradford’s railroad history.
