  • A fun ride out of San Diego brought us to this desert destination. The man at the ticket counter was very friendly and we purchased our tickets. The train was a diesel locomotive with a caboose. Our r...  read more »
  • Way out in the boonies... maybe an hour or so from San Diego... you aren't likely to stumble over this place... but it is SO worth a visit. Volunteer run... they just keep acquiring more rail items, r...  read more »
  • In the past month, I have been out to this museum twice. It is definitely worth going out of your way to see, as it is out in the San Diego County back country town of Campo. Price to ride the train w...  read more »
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
