New train experience is coming

Jun 05, 2019 - Philadelphia Inquirer

In a sweeping renovation of the Franklin Institute's train room, the science center's much-loved steam locomotive will perch on tracks supported by steel and concrete railroad-bridge-like structures newly revealed to visitors in an airy two-level space.

Joining the Baldwin 60000, which has been in residence at the institute since the 1930s, will be a rotating display of historic artifacts from the Franklin's collection that have often been tucked away in storage, out of public view.
