Mid-Continent Railway Historical Society--also known as Mid-Continent Railway Museum--is an outdoor, living museum and operating railroad recreating the small town/short line way of life during the "Golden Age of Railroading," spanning the years 1880-1916, with operating trains, educational exhibits, and displays of restored rolling stock. Mid-Continent has operated at North Freedom, Wisconsin since 1963.

We returned to take more pictures May 2012 and to our interest we heard some big band music coming from one of the car shops.  We met two delightful fellas named Skip and Richard who restore these magnificent engines and cars.  They took us for a tour of the car shop and showed us cars that dated back to Abraham Lincoln's Days

This museum is a must see if you are in the Baraboo/North Freedom area
