The new addition to the village model showing the LIRR's transition from steam to diesel may have a way to go, but the original model is still worth the price of admission, particularly when you need a break from endless carousel rides. Generally open Sat...More

We enjoyed the nearly empty, slightly dusty but authentically-felt museum, with a knowledgeable guide walking us through the important rail history of Greenport. We were though puzzled by the placement of three railcars of questionable value, positioned so that they greatly obscured the beautiful and...More
