New York Museum of Transportation

Located in the town of Rush, the New York Museum of Transportation is a new museum with great plans.  Currently, the museum consists of one large building which contains less than 10 railway cars, an annex with a large model railway layout and a couple of cars and trucks, and some outside exhibits.

Open only on Sundays, the highlight of a visit is a ride on a track car to the neighboring Rochester and Genesee Valley Railroad Museum.  At the end of the 15-minute ride are a restored country depot (Industry, New York) and several railcars--a Delaware, Lackawanna, and Western Railroad (DLWR) Baggage and Express Car #2078, a DLWR Multiple Unit Power Car # 2628, and a private Pullman from the 1950s.
