  • Fun place to go
  • Best railroad museum - you can walk among live rolling stock and even drive a locomotive.
  • A wonderful experience! I had the opportunity to drive a locomotive....where else can you do that? Huge rolling stock collection, lots of rail memorabilia. A must stop for any rail fan...or any history buff.
  • A must see for any train lover or person who enjoys history hands on. Well worth a visit.
  • Great place for a small town.
