There is no one to tell you the history of this at the CHoo CHoo itself. Although there is signage posted to stop and read. There is a hotel and they also offer sleeping in the CHoo Choo itsel.

We had some time during the afternoon of our arrival, and decided to take the free bus to see the Choo Choo without knowing what to expect. The old train terminal has been refurbished in parts, and the renovations are still under way. After passing through the station, we saw the engine and were delighted to find that we could... More

All of the little ones loved this place. With the overpriced tourist traps in the area it was nice to be able to enjoy a place that didn't charge. The history of the station was great. Highly recommended...

The train car lodging is very unique. Once inside not unlike a motel room. Not for someone with mobility problems as the steps up into the train car would be a challenge.

Even though we stayed in the newly renovated part of the hotel the a/c only worked about 1/2 the time so it tended... More

soaring ceilings dominated by huge art deco deign and windows stretching into the heavens give a glimpse back in time to the days when train travel was the preferred mode. nicely arrayed gardens and terrace behind station offer nice picture opportunities. restaurants and hotel with theater and comedy club are on site too.

The lobby is great & deceiving as the rooms don't even come close to the splendor of the lobby. I wrote an in length review & it is/was just so disappointing that I cannot recommend it.

the grounds are very nice and the shops were fun to browse in, the breakfast buffet is a good value if you don't drink coffee
