This is a fun little place! My kids enjoyed the train ride and getting to see all of the neat rain memorabilia. Could use some updating but staff was friendly and informative!

If you like trains this is a great place to spend a day. Good photographic opportunities off the beaten track.

I have been to many railroad museums around the country. This one had been let go a little bit, but much is being done to get it back to its former glory. Definitely worth a look.
