Casey Jones Bell of Doom

Adorable two-room museum full of old railway memorabilia. Centered around Casey Jones, but not exclusively about that. Curator is friendly and knowledgeable. Recommend if it's not too far off your route!

The cracked Bell of Doom from the fatal, final train ride is displayed behind a Casey Jones dummy.
