Chapter Tour of the Wheels Museum
September 18 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Join the New Mexico Chapter of the BMW CCA for a tour of the Wheels Museum on Saturday, September 18, 2021. The Wheels Museum is located on the site of the historic Santa Fe Railroad Shops in downtown Albuquerque. Built-in 1914, the Albuquerque shops serviced steam locomotives operating on the Santa Fe Railroad. The Museum is currently housed in what the Santa Fe Railyards once referred to as “The Storehouse”, a long and narrow structure built in 1914, in which was kept an enormous inventory of all manner of parts and supplies for the larger maintenance shops and the entire Santa Fe railroad system in general. Their collections embrace the history of the railroads, the impact of the rail yards on Albuquerque, as well as automobiles, horse and wagon, and other modes of transportation.
We will meet at 9:00 am in the Wheels Museum parking lot at 1100 2nd St SW in downtown Albuquerque. The guided tour will begin at 9:30 am. Lunch will be provided.
