We visited the WPRRM and spent much of the day there. If you like trains or technology in general, you will love it. We climbed all over locomotives and other rolling stock--this isn't some prissy "don't touch the artifacts" museum. We also opted for a once in a lifetime experience--drove the museum's Western Pacific F7 locomotive. The engineer was really nice and interesting. We drove a 230,000#/1500 hp. locomotive back and forth 6-7 times over an hour. It was such a great experience. Places like this are a huge asset and deserve our support. The area itself is beautiful and it's not too far from Reno--less than an hour. I can't rate this place highly enough.
