Worst money spent in my entire life. Ok where do I begin! Please don’t tell me the people are volunteers because I don’t wanna hear it. We paid $100/ person and there were 4 of us. I didn’t pay that kind of money for volunteers!!!...More

It’s a great place, you can tour an old railroad car see how people travelled in days gone by. It’s a self guided tours with many photo ops. I will definitely bring out of state visitors here.

We really enjoyed this little-known (to us) train museum. It was a stop for soldiers during WWII, where they could spend the night, get a free lunch, and take a break before going on. The exhibits from that era were really interesting. There was a...More
