Pacific, Missouri

The Route 66 Pacific Railfan Center is located in the town of Pacific as well, and offers tons of unique sites. This center is not a museum, but an actual center to get involved in learning about trains, as well as a way to get involved if you want to help teach or preserve the history yourself. Not only can you watch a variety of old school locomotives, but you can also get pictures of them and see how they are run as well. If you are in the area around September, which is the perfect time to stop by because that is when they have their festival every year. You may recognize this place when you first pull up, and that is because it was actually in a McDonald’s commercial a few summers back.
