This little historic volunteer railroad is a gem and deserves your visit. I have been riding the train here since I was a baby and hope to continue visiting until I keel-over. Great train ride through woods, along a stream, by fields and an orchard.

Stopped by and this little spot is very nice. Clean and manicured. Nice trains and has rides on Sundays. There are shops onsite. Worth an hour or so to explore.
