The Forney Museum of Transportation is a one-of-a-kind collection of over 500 exhibits relating to historical transportation. It began with antique cars, but soon expanded to include vehicles of all kinds. Some of these are familiar, while others spark the imagination. The Forney Museum is also the home of the Union Pacific Big Boy, “One of the Largest Steam Trains Ever Built,” and to Amelia Earhart’s 1923 Kissel Goldbug, “The Yellow Peril”.
