Great hostess, very informed and pleasant... interesting collection of historical items and electric train replica display. Lots of brochures in the visitors center of things to do in the area as well.

Cool place. The museum has an operating train layout (ho guage) and has two train cars of US Military and C&O heritage. The former roundhouse (now a gym) is behind the museum and a CSX line passes by the museum.
