We took our son because he's been obsessed with trains and he loved it! The train ride was great and the museum was very interesting. I wish the place and gift shop was bigger but I can't really complain for the price. Hopefully in the future they come up with something to get the kids involved. I know their equipment... More

This little depot takes you for a nice ride through a park in open cars. Make sure to visit the model trains inside the depot; you will find all the different gauges with wonderful layouts.

The nice gentleman who was the curator of the Depot has a true and deep love of trains...big or small and he can tell you story after story and loves to do so. A kid... More

My husband and I were in the area and had seen this on "youtube". What fun we had riding the train. The conductor is full of information and has done a wonderful job restoring these trains. $4 for a ride......money well spent

An old railroad depot moved to this spot houses a huge collection of trains, models in all sizes and full sized railroad artifacts, including a caboose on the property.

We came by on the spur of the moment to take a tour. Our tour guide was very knowledgable about trains in general, toy trains, in particular, as well as train collectables. There are so many it's hard to take them all in. The train set ups that run are impressive and some very elaborate. Fun gift shop and a... More

My 8 year old loves trains so we decided to stop for him. The "train ride" was great. Much longer than anticipated. The museum tour was awesome. Junior was the best. My 11 and 13 year old daughters had fun too!

We have been to a lot of toy train museums. This ranks very high with us. You get a personal tour of the museum and the tour guide will run all the trains for you. Delightful!
