You can take a short ride on a train to explore the back part of the site. You can also operate a hand car or explore an executive car. The tours are guided. Riding the train is definitely the best part.

We expected more from this museum. The roundhouse was pretty cool, but other than that, it did not meet our expectations. Consider your entry fee a donation to the preservation of this site.

When I was still in school this area was over grown with trees, and bushes having been abandoned after steam trains had died out and diesel became the way to go. Being somewhat a train nut, I wanted to see this museum since it had...More
