This is only a small museum but has a good collection of artefacts and history of the area. The steam loco is good see being preserved. The volunteers are very helpful. Well worth the time to look at the display.

Even if you are not a train buff, this is well worth a visit from a historical point of view and just a chance to meet some of the locals.
