National Museum of Transport
St. Louis County Park

There have been many improvements made to National Museum of Transport since it became a County Park of St. Louis County, MO, as seen in this overview. However, it is no longer the premier railroad bookstore that it was in the 1960s, 8/02/08.

This drumhead was affixed to the rear car of a special train for the dedication of the Lead Belt Line south out of Cuba, MO in the late 1960s. The drumhead is now in the gift shop of the museum, 8/2/08.
