Ages 10-58 years old, 6 of us. In general I'd gage our family as having a minimal interest in trains. Yet We found this a great way to spend $5 a person and 2 hours. Anything and everything about trains, what was used in trains, and the trains itself. Go and enjoy this little gem of a train graveyard and... More

When we arrived we were greeted by a man and his grandfather (I can't remember their names). The grandfather started the museum with items he has collected over the years. He will guide you through the building to see items such as dining sets from each railroad, lanterns, posters, tools, etc. There are a few working scale model sets. Outside,... More

We were basically the only ones there that afternoon, and the old man who owns the museum loves to share his collection, and his love of railroading with the public. Very much worth spending a few hours at, if you are interested in trains.

Loved it! My 15yr old son loved it too! Many of the pieces in this museum are the private collection of its caretaker/curator. Still a serious active collector at 95yrs old, he has created a most impressive collection of railroad dining car china dishware! He shared priceless stories about how he aquired several of the pieces as well as stories... More

Gives you a taste of the old West and life before the airplane and interney. The people of OK are old fashioned, family, as well.

Firstly let me state that my recommended 2-3 hour length of visit could easily be extended, there is so much to see both indoors & outside where you'll find a steam loco plus a few diesels & various items of rolling stock. Indoors there is so much to see of various items of 'railwayana', you name it & it's there!... More

Two employees, Pat and Watermelon, went out of their way to explain about the items in this railroad museum. Beautiful exhibits of miniature trains that run through a miniature Enid. It was a little hard to find but was relying on the GPS which had trouble locating anything for the whole trip. $5.00 admission
