Hardly anything of note in the museum. Really a shame, the building has a history and has been restored. The model railroads on the other hand were outstanding. They only run the models on certain days.

Nice place to visit. The little train ride is also very nice. Small kids like it. Gift shop is very nice reasonably priced gifts. Walking through the museum was pretty informative.
