Cool for kids that are interested in trains and history. Had some cool buildings and cars to view. Check schedule before going, tours run at certain times so depending on what time you go you may miss it. Our three year old loved it

Enjoyed this outing. Get up close to, and even board some big train engines. Lots of history re: the rail yard, tools that were used, folks who worked there. They were even restoring a car while we were there. Good visit
