Great exhibits maintained by enthusiasts. Trains, Trams, telecommunications, post office, old shop, and of course the buildings. They hold a night marked with entertainment and food trucks on the evening of the first Saturday of every month. Well worth a visit.

For a dollar entry on the heritage week, how could it not be worth while, the barber was the highlight plus the ride in trams and trains.
