  • Fun place, especially for familes. There is a small train station where you can watch historical movies as well as ask questions and busy souvenirs. Then for fee youncan take a train ride down to a tunnel that seporates the USA from Mexico. The train ride was fun with amazing views. On the way back the train stops at the museum where there are many older trains you can view and board. Overall, I highly recommend this for kids and train enthusiasts!!!
  • Great place in the East county to visit regardless of whether you're a train fan or not. Very friendly staff (they are all volunteering there, thank you guys for doing it!). The train ride to the border is a must!
  • Here's a great way to spend a lovely afternoon with the family. A nice train ride, visiting old trains in the Display Building (there is a new exhibit called "Signal Science" - very cool), many informative signs to read about the history of railroads and Campo, picnic lunch, and a visit to the Ice Cream Place on the way home. Go out Highway 94 and back I-8 for a circle trip. There is also a local history site and a truck museum nearby in Campo. Use the Campo Depot address of 750 Depot Street, Campo, CA 91906.
  • Thanks to the volunteers who make this possible. Be sure to see the rear museum "warehouse" first, or you will be disappointed to miss the walkthrough train cars and models. Amazing collection of stuff. Take food, water (no services in town), and spare jackets as it can be a windy site
  • I had the best time exploring this small American town! The people help make this place awesome! I love the trip down to the border, it's about an hour long and just a good east ride. This place also has a lot of railroad cars to look at too. Bring some sunscreen, most of the exhibits are outdoors.
