“Must see for the Railroad fan”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2012

This is a great railroad Museum for the fan and general interest folks. The people who work there are great. The museum is within at working rail yard and the museum has open railroad engines and cars one can tour. They also have several special events there every year.
