Bumper to Bumper
BUMPER TO BUMPER EXHIBIT IN THE FLUE SHOP
The Flue Shop, built in 1924 with hundreds of glass panes, was used to repair the flues, or pipes, used in steam locomotive boilers.
The building now houses the Bumper to Bumper exhibit, an impressive collection of antique automobiles ranging from a 1901 White Steam Stanhope to a 1978 Plymouth N.C. Highway Patrol car. It traces the evolution of the automobile in North Carolina from tiny buggy-type vehicles to sleek 1940s roadsters and modern cars.
Schedule a group tour (Group Tours) or visit the N.C. Transportation Museum during regular hours to see more.
