I've enjoyed going to the Transportation Museum in St Louis MO which has tons of train cars, engines, trucks, cars, an airplane, and a tugboat. It is located on the grounds of an old rail yard. BTW National Train Day is May 7th.

The NPM (National Postal Museum) has an RPO car running a nice 3-minute interview with some long-retired RPO clerks.
