About Great Plains Transportation Museum:
The Great Plains Transportation Museum (GPTM) displays a wide assortment of railroad equipment.
Our two largest displays are Santa Fe steam locomotive #3768 and Santa Fe FP45 diesel #93.
These locomotives are unique in our collection in that they represent the last class of
passenger locomotives that were built for the Santa Fe in their respective eras.
Indoor exhibits include railroad prints, signs, lanterns, tools, and other artifacts including a mock-up mechanical stoker used for training steam locomotive personnel. We invite you to visit the Great Plains Transportation Museum to learn more about these and many other historical pieces and displays.
The third weekend in September is a big one for events in Wichita. Be sure to check out our Events Calendar to see what else is happening!
