  • 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.
  • 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.
  • This is beautifully redone and a great place to learn about trains
  • Beautiful place.
  • Just after 10:00AM today, 11/14, I arrived, expecting the station to be open, but the doors were still locked. One door had a "Private Event" card posted on it and when I peered inside I could see banquet tables set up. I'd checked the hours online, at the station website, and it said nothing about a private event today. So I wasted my time going to the station.
