I knew the museum was closed, but wanted to find the locomotive display, which is in what is now a Visitor Center. A few nice info posters about the locomotive history and railroad in El Paso. I also made the short walk over to the Amtrak passenger station to check out the facility and historical building.

It's now the El Paso Visitors Center. The only thing left from the museum is one steam locomotive and some info about it. If you need tourist info, stop by, they have it. Looking for a museum, not there.

The museum is centered around the steam locomotive located in the front. Nice to see this level of preservation. Free admission made it that much better. Staff was knowlegdeable and enthusiastic. Good take for families.
