The Tennessee Central Railway Museum (TCRM, reporting mark TCRX[1]) is a railroad museum located in Nashville, Tennessee.

It is a small non-profit facility which is preserving the heritage of rail transport in Tennessee and the central South. The museum's name honors the former Tennessee Central Railway.

The museum maintains a collection of historic rolling stock which it restores and uses for occasional rail excursions in the area, both for fundraising and educational purposes.

It runs an all-volunteer heritage railroad dedicated to preserving, restoring, interpreting, and operating historic railroad equipment. TCRM currently has nine diesel-electric locomotives and thirty other cars/engines.

Inside the freight depot where the museum is located, there are railroad artifacts and memorabilia, a gift shop, and a large room where model train layouts in HO and N scale are displayed.
