I always take visitors here especially if they have never ridden on a train, or if they like history. I have taken my grandchildren there and they loved to ride the steam locomotive.There is a small gift shop and friendly people. Not very expensive.

Terrific docents and fun for the entire family. Great trains and a fun ride. The ride is on the property, but nonetheless it is more than worthwhile.

We loving riding on the historical trains and the lovely museum. Not to go without mentioning rolling down the grass hill! The museum store has always been filled with great items and everyone is friendly and informative.

Very well put together. Very informative. A must for train enthusiasts. Occasionally have a little train running for short rides around the train yard. Some very unique train cars.

A small railway museum. Number of exhibits is small. But well presented. Well supported by volunteers. Unfortunately no trains were running when we visited. But were made warmly welcome and personally shown round by a volunteer. Small shop and low admittance charge.

We actually went there for a memorial service for one of the volunteers. I would never have put this on my map of places to visit but it turned out to be fascinating. Very inexpensive to tour the museum and you actually get to go...More
