The Colfax Railroad Museum currently has a growing collection of railroad equipment from railroads that serviced the western Wisconsin and eastern Minnesota region. The collection includes Soo Line caboose number 273, Barney & Smith heavyweight coach number 991, and Soo Line GP-30 number 703, and other cars.

The depot houses the large collection of lanterns, railroad china, and the nation's largest railroad paper-weight collection. The primary purpose of these artifacts is to show what people encountered on day-to-day activities with the railroads and how the technology changed throughout time.
