Nice, free and easy stop in a local park to see the steam engine. Would be interesting to kids and people who are into trains. It's essentially the train with an information board in the park - so don't expect anything beyond that. Good photo...More

If you are in the area, this is worth the 15 minute stop. Walk around, read the signs, gawk in amazement on how big it is. Then go back to the car and look up a YouTube video of one of them in action.
