  • St. Thomas was a critical component of passenger rail in this part of the world, and this museum is an important part of what is left of that legacy. What this museum lacks in funding, they make up for in heart. There's much here to love, so if you're willing to forgive the obvious financial challenges they face, I think you'll find your time and money were well spent. I'm giving 5 stars because of value for the money; they're not asking a lot of money to visit, and they're doing a lot with very little. Well worth it if you're in the area.
  • Loved the history and the "old timers" that walked you through it. Unfortunately they are lacking some serious funds and the building has gone down hill and some projects most likely will never be completed. It would be a shame to loose this valuable piece of history, but without support it will fall victim more lost pieces of history. Great place to visit and spend a few hours looking back into some local history.
  • Museums have exhibits. And funding. This has neither.
  • Great model RR display!
  • Amazing place to see a few chunks of history, well done!
