     Thank you for your interest in Northern Ohio Railway Museum. The Museum is located at 5515 Buffham Road in Seville, Ohio (near Chippewa Lake). Here, on a pasture and a two mile section of the historic Cleveland, Southwestern & Columbus Railway right-of-way, the Museum is pursuing its mission to collect, preserve, restore, display and operate streetcars and other railway equipment for the education and entertainment of the public. Over forty streetcars, interurbans, rapid transit cars and other rolling stock have been collected. Most of this equipment is either operable or will be restored for operation on our three mile demonstration railroad. The Museum is open to the public for walking tours from 10 am to 4 pm Saturdays, mid-May through October. Admission to the Museum is free, donations are requested and stop by on the second Saturday of the month and ride a 100 year old trolley car. Visit our  Directions to the Museum  page for maps and directions and visit our  Museum Events  page for fare details and full schedule.

Join us for a journey through Electric Railway History.
