My husband is the train buff so I would not have picked this place, but it was very nice. He really enjoyed it. The folks working there clearly love it. We visited the first week of November, so the trains were still decorated from Halloween,...More

This place is neat but not very big. We just wanted to check it out. If you have an hour to an hour and a half you can see everything and ride the train. It costs $8 per adult to get in. They offer discount...More

This is a fun little place! My kids enjoyed the train ride and getting to see all of the neat rain memorabilia. Could use some updating but staff was friendly and informative!

If you like trains this is a great place to spend a day. Good photographic opportunities off the beaten track.

I have been to many railroad museums around the country. This one had been let go a little bit, but much is being done to get it back to its former glory. Definitely worth a look.
