It's rather horrifying to imagine that many younger generations may not know what a real train is - particularly those growing up in Miami. But the 50+ year-old Gold Coast Railroad Museum is keeping the legacy alive. There are lots of rarities on site at this unique spot, from Roosevelt's presidential locomotive to a rescue train that helped victims of the 1935 hurricane. They've got working trains on site, too, so you can check out the cab of a locomotive or cruise in a caboose. It's like no place else, and a rare glimpse at the American locomotive legacy.
