Yorklyn, DE 19736
Features: Steam-powered cars, locomotives and other vehicles are represented in this facility, dedicated to the "Age of Steam" in America from the end of the Civil War until the early 1920s. It includes the largest collection of steam-powered autos in the world, an exhibit of miniature stationary steam engines and tiny railroad locomotives, and the 7" gauge coal-burning Auburn Valley Railroad, all located on the grounds. Seen here is the 30-horsepower 1912 Stanley, a 7-passenger touring car that holds the record for the longest trip ever made in a steam car -- 8,328 miles during the summer of 1972.
