The South Florida Railway Museum is a railroad museum located in the Deerfield Beach Seaboard Air Line Railway Station in Deerfield Beach, Florida. It is operated by volunteers.

Location[edit]

SFRM is located in the historic Deerfield Beach Seaboard Air Line Railway Station, which was built in 1926. It is a registered historic place, and was restored in the early 1990s. The station today serves Amtrak and Tri-Rail passengers. The museum is located in the former Seaboard Air Line Less Car Load facility.

Exhibits[edit]

The museum features three operating model train layouts, depicting 3 different times and places: Middle Atlantic, 1950s; Southwest, 1890s Narrow Gauge; and South Atlantic, Modern. There is an extensive collection of model locomotives, showing off the liveries of the railroads through the years.

In addition, collections of apparel, tools, literature, and other items from 1926 to present. Bells and whistles are also on display, as well as a full sized mock up of the tail end of a Pullman observation car.
