  • There seem to be more Train museums in the US than there are active train lines. Funny how people like to celebrate what they don't have. Still as train museums go, it's a cool one. And wholly unexpec...  more »
  • Great outing for a Sunday afternoon on a scenic train ride through country not typically seen if visiting San Diego. The haunted train car was spooky enough to the 8 year old and even haunted me some....  more »
  • We visited this place on October 14th for a 3 year old birthday party but it's fun for all ages. The train ride itself is less than an hour and has no facilities on board so be sure to use the restroo...  more »

  • Beautiful place to learn a bit of the history of railroads. Full of nostalgia and items from a by gone area. Has a little place to sit and enjoy a small, quiet meal. Along with a small playground for young children. Currently going under renovation and expansion. So a small donation is always greatly appreciated. Hope this place stays open a for a long time to come.
  • Staff were super friendly, facilities were very modern and clean. So many interesting things to see and read about and so much fun for kids, even small kids. There is a swingset and a sandbox too. I loved getting to go inside the antique boxcars in the museum, which was free with the train ride ticket.
  • Really fun time on the North Pole limited. Great job, my four year old had a blast. Santa was amazing. Good with the kids and very friendly. The conductor was so helpful and nice to my 90 year old grandma. Would definitely recommend.
  • Great for anyone interested in trains or history. Kids seems to have good time. Train ride to boarder felt slow but it was a calm and relaxing ride.
  • Fantastic trip for Scout Troops. They do the railroading MB, train ride, full guided tour and extra historical information, all for a very low price. A fantastic spot for Eagle projects.
