  • We went on one of the Easter rides (there's a bunny, a rubber duck hunt, and candy for children). The views were lovely and the conductors and museum staff were cheerful, friendly, and informative. We went with a toddler and three babies under one, all of whom loved it. The train cars are quite old, so while they are clean and well maintained, there's definitely signs of wear - I can see some people not liking it. The museum itself is a little hard to find at first - it's under a bridge and hidden by other worn-down buildings. We had a great time - it was very relaxing and fun. I would definitely recommend it to all ages.
  • Yes, we know it was not steam but the trip was excellent! The Engineer took the train the furthest north than they normally do and the scenery was fantastic! Even had to stop a couple times to clear the tracks of fallen branches.
  • I've been going on their Santa train for 4 years now and my daughter loves it! Special gifts are given to each child after they meet with Santa. The bells were an extra special touch this year!
  • Trains are cool and this place has them enough said. Also the Christmas train ride if you have young ones is affordable and well worth the trip.
  • Awesome place, especially if you are really interested in older trains.
