  • What a wonderful little museum! The docents are extremely knowledgeable and passionate. We arrived late so the last train ride was full, something we were prepared for since it is first come, first serve. But the staff were so apologetic and accommodating that any disappointment (which was completely on us for bad planning) was rectified two fold! We were given a fascinating guided tour by the sweetest gentleman. Since it was towards the end of the day, our toddler was over it but every volunteer was so friendly and helpful throughout his little tantrums. We already have plans to go back next weekend, with a rested toddler 😁 Thank you all for a wonderful visit!
  • Nice little museum. Pleasant docent. Worthwhile stop for RR buffs.
  • Amazing! Worth visit! Go talk to the people! Lovely volunteers that have amazing historic background!
  • Amazing history! I work there too
  • Amazing collection and such wonderful volunteers. Totally volunteer run, with all donations going to restoration and upkeep. A delightful place for all ages. Grandpa as well as the 4 1/2 yr. old loved poking about the train cars and viewing proposed restoration projects. A definite must see. Maybe you might have some expertise to lend? If you go now, you will get to see the engines dressed up in holiday garb. Very fun.
