this place is awesome i loved it and to a degree missed the idea of the good old 1900s it sound like a great time of ultimate possibilities, and opportunities. a time of hope and global prospering . good old industrial revolution.

The museum's collection comprises various trains/cabs, memorabilia, historical photographs, and model train sets, housed in the former railroad passenger terminal.

Another place to go back in history! This is a wonderful place to pretend you are in charge of a railroad, drive a train, search through all of the cubby holes, and discuss history with your children! Railroads are very important to all of us!

Nice, but it didn't seem like enough of the cars were restored and open for viewing. What we saw was O.K. but for the money, I have to say I expected more.
