“Pleasant Surprise!”

Silver Lake Railroad
Attraction details
Reviewed August 6, 2014

Wow, if you love history or trains, you should be sure to make a stop at Sliver Lake. This is totally ran by volunteers and donations for the train tickets. They have a beautiful restored diner on site, and a train station museum. If that is not enough, you get to ride up into the hills for a 55 minute trip. Great for adults and kids!

Nice railroad museum. A lot of railroad history, especially for the local area. The train ride is by donation so everyone can enjoy the ride. Give what you can. Donations help keep the museum operational. I believe the entire staff is volunteer, and very knowledgeable. They love trains and the history of it all. There is also a renovated Diner to be visited, if that is something you are not familiar with. It too carries a lot of history. There are snacks available for purchase but not more (chips, ice cream, soft drinks). Bring the whole family and enjoy!

Silver lake Railroad runs on DONATIONS. It is a really nice old train station with a lot of history to offer . The trains and the cars are very well taking care of and fun to ride on. I personally have put some time in to working on the rails to help keep it up to par. Views are nice and the wild life (depending on the day) can be very pleasant. Great for all ages. Good times. You will all love it. And remember Donations is how they keep it going.
