  • Most of the trains on display can be explored inside and out and there is a lot of interesting information. The volunteers are helpful, concerned about the safety of patrons, and work hard. The day we went it was raining and stormy and they refused to run the train in the lightning, but were willing to run the train for us even in the rain.
  • My impression is very good! It feels like there is a time mashine. If you walk among old trains you will have similar feelings!
  • We attended the Second Thursday Preschool program for the first time and my son had a blast! We will be doing this again for sure.
  • 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.
  • If you like old trains, you'll love this place. Great for kids
