THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - A new railroad exhibit opened today at the Museum of History in Thomasville. It's called Trains! Trains! Trains!

People came through all day to check it out. The exhibit debuted at the Atlanta Airport a few years ago.

Workers at the museum say they're excited to have it in Thomasville because railroads are a tremendous part of Thomas county's History.

"After the civil war, when the railroad was extended to Albany in 1869, that brought a great many Northern and Midwesterners here as tourists. Almost 15,000 a year. So we thought it was just an interesting way to focus on that part of our history," says Ann Harrison Executive Director for the Thomas County Museum of History.

The Trains exhibit will be on display at the Museum of History through January 10th. The Museum is open Monday through Saturday. Feedback
