It's difficult to get there, but worth the hassle. You will be amazed by the largest diesel engine running gloriously. The exhibits were entertaining and educational too. You can learn a lot about the history of diesel engines and locomotives in general. However, don't wear...More

Well... If you have any interest for large machinery, engines or moving parts what so ever, then this is a must go. Check the webpage for when they start the engines so you get the most out of it. Free admission.
