This museum doesn't have trains to look at, but it does have railroad memorabelia and a really decent research library. The docents/volunteers who run this facility are knowledgeable and helpful. This is a museum more for railroad buffs than folks who want to see trains.

The volunteer guide does such a great job with so many interesting facts about the small but so much to see museum. They have many books for sale and a libray upstairs you can visit.If you like the history of how the first rail road was built you will love this place. No fee but worth a good donation.
