Outside there are was also a caboose and a snowplow that you can walk through as well. There is a great model train on the third floor that is apparently operated on Saturdays. There were hands-on ehxibits... More

Small and interesting museum of the local railway history, especially the information on the "last spike" Only a couple of engines on show although there is a lot of reading exhibits. Worth a short stop, reasonable cost to enter.

The information was well presented and the museum was well laid out. Not a big museum, but still provided an hour's worth of fun, walking about and exploring the exhibits and cars.
