Time of year
It may not be the biggest railroad museum, but it has some great locomotives and very passionate volunteers. I love that it is totally funded by donations.
This is a review specifically of the Holiday Express. This is the second year in a row that we have been less than satisfied with the purchasing process for the Holiday Train. The website is so poorly setup through whatever service they use, that it defaults to the wrong times,…

My family has always been into trains. I take train rides whenever I get a chance. The price of this place being free is amazing but I made sure to donate.
I am a big historical fan and this museum has a operating rail segment to the local amusement park. You can get hands on and feel these old locomotives up close and personal. Cant miss attraction for history, rail buffs, and Transit buffs.
Went to see the famous "Daylight Locomotive" and was not disappointed. Seeing the ALCO Nickel Plate Road diesel unit was an unexpected pleasure. The volunteers who man the place are very well versed on the locomotives and would love to share with you.
