BALTIMORE (WJZ) -- Nine days after a train went off the tracks above the Baltimore Streetcar Museum, the visitor center will open again.
The derailed cars didn't hit the main building, but did cause other damage.
One of the fallen train cars did knock out its power supply. Now, after one weekend shut down, it's back to business.
The lights are back on inside Baltimore's streetcar museum and this weekend it will welcome visitors for the first time since a freight train slipped off elevated tracks... Just steps away from the building.
"I've always worried that one day a wreck would happen that would come this way and that would be totally devastating to us," said Ed Amrhein, the administrative vice president at the Baltimore Streetcar Museum.
That wasn't case this time, but the derailment did knock out it's power supply.
When cars from a CSX train came tumbling off the tracks and landed on Falls Road, the museum was closed at the time and the building dodged a direct hit.
The toppled train cars caused a domino effect of lesser damage to a substation that houses the buildings power supply.
Jennifer Gwynn's van was parked outside at the time
She cleans the museum and was outside in her driver's seat when she heard a bang.
"I look up, and the train was falling off the bridge," Gwynn said.
Now with clean-up and repairs in motion, the museum's streetcar rides will stay temporarily out of service.
But, Amrhein said the visitor's center is ready to go.
"We figured, we're going to have a lot of people want to come down and see what happened," he said. "We figured we might as well be open and greet them."
The visitor center portion of the museum is scheduled to reopen Sunday at noon.
