Mid-Continent Railway Museum’s full equipment roster has over 100 items in all, including 9 steam locomotives, 8 internal combustion locomotives, 34 passenger cars, 30 freight cars, 18 cabooses, and 10 pieces of service equipment. Much of the roster is considered part of the museum’s “collection,” fitting the “Golden Age” era criteria and the museum’s Mission Statement. The balance of the roster fulfills other needs such as storage, maintenance use, or daily revenue service. The museum’s collection is unique for its narrow focus both by era and the geographical area it represents.

Some items are privately owned by museum members. Many are accessible to the general public, specifically those on display in the Coach Sheds, but many are awaiting restoration and proper display.
