Description

The Oklahoma Railway Museum (ORM) operates over the former Missouri, Kansas and Texas Railroad line (the Katy) in Northeast Oklahoma City. The Museum is located in Oklahoma’s Frontier Country Tourism area, just south of the Adventure district at 3400 NE Grand Blvd., just off I-35 at exit 31 or NE 36th street. The museum and train operations serve as an educational experience for both young and old, which can provide the experience of railroad travel either in a 1940-50’s streamliner passenger train or the feel of the mixed train passenger service that once operated across the state.
The museum operates a variety of different Diesel Locomotives and passenger equipment ranging from the 1920’2s to the 1950’s. In addition there are many pieces of freight equipment and display locomotives. The museum also houses many artifacts from the Oklahoma Railway Company that operated the trolley system in Oklahoma City until it was shut down in 1946, which are displayed in the Frisco Pullman Car at the Oakwood Depot. The Depot is the restored 1905 Depot from Oakwood, Oklahoma that served the Kansas City, Mexico and Orient Railroad, which was later purchased by the Santa Fe Railroad.
