If you are looking for engines, guns, and classic cars this is it. Housed in the original train station the museum outlines Ogden's vast rail road history as well as showcasing Browning guns and classic cars. The huge model train set goes through 4 or 5 rooms!

Extremely well organized exhibits, with a great interactive area for the kids and very instructive displays for all ages. Ask to see the History Channel movie on the construction of the Trans Continental railway - it's fascinating.

We went back to Union Station in Ogden, Utah and took a look at the trains and museum. It was good to go back and look at the trains again. This time my favorite was seeing the Salt Lake City 2002 Olympic Torch Rail Car. It is a well done exhibit of train engine and rail cars.
