Great trains, great volunteers. You will find trains and train related stuff from all over. Also, you can look at the underside of a steam engine.

An excellent museum. Large climate controlled viewing area inside and even more outside. There are RR associated exhibits and scale models. Interactive areas are scattered throughout, though not in overwhelming numbers. Price is quite reasonable. There are other attractions very near by and food just up the road. This compares very well with the Altoona museum and Steamtown. Highly recommended.

Admittedly, the visit to this facility will be better in some ways, in the summer time, because you would have access to the yard and seeing the power (which includes steam!) go back and forth. However, I can only imagine how busy this place might be in the summer, so I guess a Wednesday afternoon in early January really wasn't that bad an idea after all!! Lots of parking, fair admission prices. Elevator or stairs to go up the the second level where the model railroads are running. Plus the catwalk to view all the collections f engines and cars from a higher angle. The ground floor has rows and rows of beautiful condition cars...from boxcars to Russel plows, to many types of engines...steam, electric and diesel. Some nice hands on stuff for kids, too. Very kid friendly! I can imagine lots of school groups visiting here. Nice gift shop...superb collection of books

AS a resident of Baltimore Im familiar with a well run good sized Rail museum, but this one sets the bar even higher! Very affordable prices for admission. Very clean facilities and okay signage though out give a good overview of their immense collection of rolling stock. their model train layouts and reproductiion small town area off to one side of the indoor train yard are both very well done with great signage throughout. The out door yard is well laid out and acts as good staging area for the artifacts that haven't been able to be put under cover (yet). There are plans in work to use their turn table set up as part of a new 2nd building to store and restore theiur large steam collection still outdoors and I look forward to seeing that develop.
