Not only do they have a year round museum and trains you can view, but during certain times of the month you can ride a diesel or even a historic Steam powered engine. Great for kids. My boys love this place.

My Mom loved this as it brought back memories .We took the tour of the Roundhouse unfortunately this was the coldest day of our trip and it was very uncomfortable as the windows are permanetly open. Very informative if you ever wonder how they got to turn the train around

Enjoyed the tours of the cars and the small train ride. The miniature trains were good too. This is close to the History museum and makes it easy for a fun day.

This museum was very interesting and great fun. We enjoyed the variety of locomotives and cars that were displayed. We were able to take a guided tour of two service cars and a guided train ride. The staff were friendly and knowledgeable.

It was a walk back into history. The docent obviously loved his job and shared a wealth of information to tourists.

This amazing site is the only remaining Civil War era railroad depot in the South. What is amazing is that not only has it survived intact, but it has been lovingly restored by a largely volunteer force. There are locomotives which are over 100 years old, as well as newer diesel engines. There are numerous different types of railroad card... More

Got here late so only got to see the one-half and visit the children's "museum" for 15 minutes. The kids loved the two story playground / learning center. The railroad museum is a greast look into early American ingenuity and technology. Staff was very pleasant and helpful

This explorable rail yard is a giant historic playground. Each railcar is a trip through history where you can't help but be transported back to the days of travel that hummed with the iron tracks and steam engine churning. Be prepared to spend a lot of time here, as it's easy to get absorbed in the setting and its sights.... More

This is a fascinating railroad round house. There are some cars and engines that have been restored and others that are in the process of restoration. You can climb onto the restored cars. The men working on the cars and engines are happy to answer your questions. You can wander through the machine shops as well.

This was our first stop on the Trolley tour, and it was a good one. Seeing the history of the railroad was great, and the kids loved the trains! They really enjoyed the model trains, and riding the "hand train" with Marlene. This is a must if you visit if you visit Savannah! Total cost for our family of 5... More
