If, after hours of arid scenery you need a "Green, green grass of home" break, this is for you. Co-located with the Chamber of Commerce, this center grants access to some of the finest rolling stock (passenger cars) outside of the B&O Rail Museum in Baltimore.
The attentive staff of two, were Docent-level prepared to "interpret" and dispense a glossy, beautifully compiled brouchure-gratis. The center was the font of information a traveler would hope for, far away from home. This reviewer was captivated by discovering that a 40's-50s era dining car permitted full access to the galley and residual pots & pans. Add that the same visitor rode, ate and consumed a drink or two from it's bar when it plied the rail between Minneapolis and Chicago; astounding. Ms. Bull, one of the two on duty was about to be interviewed by NPR. It's that kind of a place. How they came to be gifted with this collection is a tribute to a lot of hard work. Down side: they won't permit one to crawl on the 12 foot Jack-a-lope; bummer.
