County historian Glenn Martin said the museum closed largely because of the advancing age of the local railroad society's remaining members.
The Glenn E. Martin Genealogy Library will receive the bulk of the railroad documents being held in the museum. Those documents include the personnel file records for ICRR employees in the Memphis-to-Louisville division, including many former Caldwell County residents. The records will be stored at the genealogy library and will be accessible by staff members for families requesting information on ancestors who worked for the railroad.
