Great engines & cars on display; interesting film to view about rail history. Our lovely guide was extremely knowledgeable and took us through two Pullman cars from yesteryear. There is a electrically-powered roundhouse here, which is neat to see. We spent several hours, but honestly,...More

They have a movie that tells the history of Savannah. It cost a few dollars but well worth it. They also have a large number of brochures and coupons that help reduce costs and narrow down the places that you may want to see. It...More

This place is facinating, it is a Round House, railroad repair shop and is functional (for entertainment only) and is thoroughly enjoyable to watch, look and participate in.

This museum has some huge open air exhibits and shows the development of the railways in Georgia. The executive train, boiler house and garden were especially interesting. There are planned activities throughout the day. Well worth the time. Next to the visitors centre.

You can take a short ride on a train to explore the back part of the site. You can also operate a hand car or explore an executive car. The tours are guided. Riding the train is definitely the best part.
