Very enjoyable train ride through the Ohio country side. I took first class. Car crew did a great job. The museum was full of interesting things to see and read about. Well worth going to see.

We had a wonderful time today on the fall train ride. Well worth the ticket cost. I recommend first class seating to gain the extra leg room. We also visited the train museum and wow what a treat

Excellent small museum providing a glimpse of the time when railroads were THE way to travel. Walk-through passenger cars show what the train travel experience was like. Worthwhile for history buffs, railroad fans, or anyone interested in Americana.

This museum is not just about the trains themselves but about the actual Depot and the important part in played in WWII. The communities of Dennison and surrounding were very much moral booster for the troops as they left for the war. The museum explains...More
