  • So much history without feeling overwhelmed with a lot of reading. Kids even had fun exploring and learning. They loved the school train.
  • This place is great! The rail cars and engines they have are restored very well. Love how you can walk around and go inside them to see how things were in the old days. Also my son loved the Thomas the train setup! The gift shop and house are pretty neat too. There is also a small zen garden which has all the plants labelled if you are into that sort of thing. I would recommend for anyone looking for something to do and has an interest in the history of our railways.
  • A little small, but a decent collection of historical trains
  • Well done. Tour guide is very knowledgeable. Exhibits are updated. Need a better gift shop.
