In all honesty, we pulled up to the Ligonier Valley Railroad Museum, and our first thought was "That's it?" It doesn't look like much from the outside - just a building and a caboose - but it is well worth exploring. Inside the beautifully renovated Darlington station is a wealth of artifacts telling the whole story of the short rail line that ran between Ligonier and Latrobe. Started by the Mellon family (yes, that Mellon family), the line operated from 1877 to 1952. It's a fascinating story - one that's sure to enthrall rail enthusiasts and children. The number and range of artifacts is staggering and their presentation is very professional. The docents are very expert in the subject and can answer all your questions. Be sure to visit the caboose!

One of the cool things that gets forgotten in the shadow of idlewild, worth the trip, especially if your kid loves thomas the train.

The Ligonier Valley Railroad Museum is currently offering free admission until Labor Day. We recently had a very nice tour conducted by one of the knowledgeable members on a Saturday afternoon. There are many fascinating items for those interested in history or the railroad. One can also walk through the red caboose located near the restored train station.

We visited twice. Really well done exhibit and restored train station. A little hard to find and not open every day. If you are in the area of Ildewid Park it is next door.

This is a great little place to take the kids to learn about the importance of the railroad in this area of the country over the years.
