I am not a train lover but it was really interesting. I think the most interesting items was the tours that were done outside. I would have loved to see the inside of some of the executive cars but we were not there when that...More

Interesting short excursion to learn more about the old rail station and it's importance. Restoration continues and more content will be available in the upcoming years.

The museum continues to expand it's inventory of engines and cars. As a kid these were the trains we would see. A great place to reminisce and share with the kids.

My interest in railroads is from my childhood. My grandfather was a train conductor and I remember riding cross country with my family in the 50s. The authentic roundhouse gives a clear picture of how it worked. A young man offered us a tour of...More

We spent a good three hours at the museum. It was atmospheric, informative and relaxed. I may even go back for another amble round. The guides were enthusiastic and committed. Well done all round. If you like trains, industrial history... then this is the place...More

I've only been with my school groups, but I think everyone has to pay. I think senior's get a discount.
