We came by and went inside. It's a small place, with a couple of trains and carts, some old stuff on the side that shows the life at the time when these machines were in action

It was nice to come here and extremely cheap. I believe $2 per person. Good history and many display items from early years.

The museum has old trains that where used 40 years ago to transport people and goods from Pacific to Atlantic, they still are in very good conditions. Not much to see but the few things they have are very interesting.
