Old Illinois Passenger Depot Railroad Museum


This caboose presented to the city of Carbondale by Station Carbondale, Inc. as an educational and historic reminder of the positive impact railroads had on the early development of our city and nation.

Built in 1903 by the Illinois Central Railroad, the Old Railroad Passenger Depot has since been restored and now serves as home to the Carbondale Train Museum. Filled with information, artifacts and souveniers, the museum contains significant facts relating to Carbondale's history. Ring the bell of an original train car from the Illinois Central Railroad, which still sits on the track!
