“Stay On The Right Track And Visit This Place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 15, 2013

A great under the radar museum that has been put together with the total dedication of some loyal volunteers. Over the years, they have restored an old railroad shop building which houses a great collection of locomotives, including the famed steam locomotive 819. Also contains a great collection of photographs. It is a little hard to find, but pay attention to the signs. It is well worth the trip.

“staff very very friendly”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

It wasn't a whole lot to see but my toddler really enjoyed seeing the trains go around the train table and going into the trains that they had available on display. When we went they were not all on display because they had a special event they were preparing for. The staff were very nice but they do have women from the local prison who come to volunteer and they were there when we arrived.

“Low Key”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This is a self guided tour with knowledgeable volunteers available to answer questions. The trains on display appeal to all ages. Keep in mind the area has a roof, but minimal heating and cooling.
