Great little museum. It doesn't take long to get through it, but it's worth the trip. It's conveniently located by the ballpark.

My son loved the trains. He got to go up and look in. We have plenty of pictures of him and my husband next to the trains. he was in awe. When we were there they were having music in the park so it was a double treat.

We went there, but nobody home. There was no assigned hours of operation, but only operated on volunteer availability. At least we got to see the outside of the train and the depot.

By chance we stopped by the train depot in Gorham to look at the map. We saw the sign and decided to take a driving break and look inside. What a surprise!
