A quirky, fun, little museum. The two volunteers running the model trains and giving the tour were great fun with lots of stories. There are many displays of model trains and other train related memorabilia including several large, complex model train layouts. This is a haven for model train buffs, the kids will love it too. A small miniature railroad runs around the park and will also entertain the kids. It’s certainly worth and hour or two or your time when visiting Alamagardo. Recommended.

I think the toy train depot is very good for my 2 yr old. She loved going through the park and seeing the ppl and even watching the cars drive by. Although it only takes like 10 minutes its worth the few dollars to entertain her and watch her get excited about riding a train.
Negative: It isn't always available and running even though they are open i believe 5 days a wk

The gentlemen running this small museum were wonderful explaining all the differences in scale, rare train cars, and lots of other model RR information. They were even willing to move the model trains around for me to get the best photographs! The city park train seemed to be a hit with the smaller ones.

The train depot offered a small train ride and museum and toy shop. My boys love trains, and we have visited many train museums, however there wasn't much to this one.

My kids loved riding the toy train around the city park. The ride lasts about 10 minutes. There is a model train museum as well but we did not go through it. The souvenir shop contains lots of train memorabilia and model train items.
