    This is a "must" for all train buffs and those who enjoy historic sites. The station itself with its architecture is well worth the visit in itself. The static displays are neat and the staff are well...  more »

    This is a beautifully restored building. We had a very interesting guided tour for free, from one of the volunteer guides. If you like training s it is worth a visit.

    I was not inside the station, just outside, on the lawn near the tracks just like everyone else. I can't believe they let pedestrians cross the tracks! Unsafe. We were there for the UP 844 steam train and it was really cool.

    Historical. Great place for events. Awesome renovation and close to Noto.

    I have a three year old that is head over heels for Thomas the Train so the Overland Station was like Disney World for him. He loved everything about the train room, and then stepping outside to see the real thing. If you have kids that love trains this is an absolute must go destination.
