I really like this place and have been visiting it for almost two decades. The two-footer steam train makes a circuit then another one, and on the second one stops at the top. There is a great car museum "A 1902 Rambler to a 1962 Rolls", some really wonderful cars. There is an early 1900s Oldsmobile, Packards, Model Ts including Station Wagons, a 1946 "Jeepster" to serve the post-war civilian market, etc. When you leave the auto museum there is a model railroad display next door, one of those multi-track small village constructions about four feet off the floor (the type you wished you had had in your basement when you were 10!). There are period displays scattered throughout the ground which you walk down and among to get back to the main station. On your way out be sure to stop at the Gift Store, books and gifts for old trains and cars and plenty of items for the children. This year there were "Thomas the Tank Engine" days the ninth through the eleventh of August if I remember correctly, check the website before you come for details. They have "Thomas" at the head or three or four of the two-footer cars with the regular steam locomotive behind (I don't know if it was a 'pusher' or not). They also have extra games and attractions for the children but it is busy and packed so plan to get there early for best results.
