  • Took the in-laws for a ride on the steam train, it was a great trip and they really enjoyed themselves. They also had a great time looking around the museum / Depot before we took the train ride. I wo...  more »
  • What a nice train ride and especially in the fall! We took the longer trip and enjoyed the brisk weather and the fall foliage.  more »
  • I took my grandson through this museum. He is 8 and really enjoyed it. The volunteer were very knowledgeable and even let him run a train around the track.  more »

  • The facility was well kept and had a few displays of antique rail pieces. The restrooms where clean and easy to find. The staff in the depot as well as on the train were top notch. The #15 train has local history back to the thirties. The ride was pleasant and it is smooth for a vintage train. The cost was reasonable for the quality and would be great for younger children since it is only about an hour and a half for their shorter excursion.
  • Nice little steam train excursion. The depot and displays aren't huge, but there is some history to be seen. Steam trains have their own cult-like following, and that's the whole reason this place exists: it is all-volunteer, and run by people who love the mechanics of a steam locomotive. We took the run to Ruth, there's some really pretty farmland to be seen that you can't really see from the highway. Price is reasonable, and the people are friendly.
  • It was nice but the steam train was broken. The ride is an out and back with a 10min stop at the stopping point. Sparkling cider was served and the crew was nice.
  • We had about 10 in our party. There was plenty of room for us to move around and see the beautiful views. All the employees were very friendly. We all enjoyed this train ride. Age's 2 to 62
  • Great place to visit. I was unprepared and a little overwhelmed when I entered. Definitely got a little emotional after seeing all the displays of our fallen hero's. I think it should be mandatory to make all kids under the age of 18 to visit a place like this personally. God Bless America!!
