“Wonderful train photos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 4, 2012

Great old photographs. Very talented photographer. A "don't miss" stop while in Roanoke. Very near the Hotel Roanoke and Transportation museum. Make a day of it.

“Allow Lots of time”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

The pictures and items are great for a hard nose railfan. So allow at least two hours to get a good appreciation for Mr. Links work and what the museum has set up for us to appreciate.
Dont be in a rush to get through thios place. I will return again some day to see the rest in detail. One hour is not enough time to see this collection.
