Good for a quick stop with small kids who love trains. Kept our 2.5 year old busy for about a half an hour. Entrance via donation. Cool caboose for kids to check out. Can't really touch many model trains.

This is an old depot wit a caboose next to it. Unfortunately it was closed for the season as of the day we stopped by. It would be a quick stop when they are open, worth the half hour to see it.

My husband and I enjoyed our visit. Nancy and Bill were excellent docents! My husband is a railroad buff and loved chatting with Nancy and Bill.

Great for kids friends and family to interact with the tools and have fun not to mention getting to go into a caboose in the back
