  • My impression is very good! It feels like there is a time mashine. If you walk among old trains you will have similar feelings!
  • My retired father just started volunteering here so we recently went to check it out. This place is so cool! They have a really diverse collection of old cars, including many engines, a postal train with a sorting car, and a few sleeper cars from different eras that you can walk through. Made we want to go on a rail journey across the USA.
  • Not just train engines and cars. Early automobiles, mid century buses, steam tractors, and some more. Great for children and adults.
  • An absolute must of you have a little boy who's interested in trains and buses, but be aware that it's more like a disused rail yard than a museum in many respects.
  • Great family learning experience even if you are not into trains... Also $7 is very affordable
