Local Places of Interest Page for The Railroad Model and Historical Society of Southeastern Ohio

Club Members Logo

Railroads have been a part of Ohio history since the first railroad was completed in 1836. Coal is one of the

most valuable minerals produced in Ohio with coal production mostly concentrated in the southeastern

part of Ohio. With 19 counties in southeastern Ohio there is a lot of railroad history around us. The Local

Places of Interest Pages is here to help you find railroad locations both active and abandoned that you can visit

Happy Railroad Hunting and always remember to be safe and respect all warnings and restrictions.
