  • I absolutely loved this place, the couple in charge have really put a lot of time and love into this museum and it shows. Be sure to bring cash for admission! They've got model railways of southwestern ns, and so many artifacts of the railway operations that operated in southwestern ns. My personal favorite is his "Great Wall of China" his display of the different fine China from the old passenger trains! Love it here
  • We'll done miniature railway depiction of the railroad from Halifax to Yarmouth from its inception to its decline. Lots of railway artifacts and photographs
  • Duane does an outstanding job of portraying the train and railroad life that was an important part of Nova Scotia's South Shore for over 75 years
  • Made sure my grandchildren had the best time and was very knowledgeable about the line
  • Loved it. We almost drove past it and gave it a shot. You can tell there's a lot of love and effort put into the experience right from the start. The interconnecting model is fantastic and the experience in transitioning from the day to night and back in the model was great. It was my son's highlight of our Nova Scotia trip. My daughter loved it as well.
