Checked this out while on the Western Maryland railroad ride. Not really into carriages, but was interesting to see the different types and construction. A good way to kill some time if not interested in walking up the hill to Frostburg.

The place is free so definitely drop by especially if you are there on a train from Cumberland. The area is charming with a very small town atmosphere. Even if you have no interest in the history of carriages, you might be won over.

I was greeted by very rude lady. First she snip " no camera " When I was was just checking time. If that was not rude enough she then stated we are only open 15 more minutes. Nice carriages but need some manors.

A quick walkthrough while waiting for the train to go back. Interesting history. Would not go here on purpose, but it's at the train stop and worth going into while you wait
