The museum also has a collection of trains that are either on loan or being stored for individuals or groups.

The AGAWA was a business car used by railroad officials for the purpose of travel, line inspections, and entertaining existing and prospective customers. It was was built in 1913 by Barry and Smith Car Company for the Longview, Portland National Railway. In 1930 the Wabash Railroad purchased the car, and it was named CHICAGO. The Algoma Central Railway acquired the car in 1953. In 1995, the Wisconsin Central Railway purchased the Algoma Central Railway, and the AGAWA was painted in Wisconsin Central Railway colours. In 2001, the Wisconsin Central Railway was purchased by CNR and was repainted in Algoma Central Railway colours. The car was then acquired by Gary Southgate in 2003.
