The holiday display was outstanding, and the volunteers had great information about the model trains. I have been there at non-holiday times also, and my grandkids loved walking through the real train cars. The garden railway is a nice set up.

A very enjoyable "walk down memory lane" about trains in the Florida Panhandle, in the Florida swamp. There is a special section of train track beside the train station that "click-clacks" whenever the wheels of a train rolls over it. A true piece of nostalgia...More

Well worth the time to stop in and check this place out. Though a small collection; it is very informative in it's nature. There are several buildings to wander through and would be fun for any age.
