“Discovered this little gem taking some kids on a field trip. Was surprised at how much I enjoyed it! You can tour a locomotive (the engine) , dining car, caboose and more! The depot houses a museum of train memorabilia and a really large model train setup. Amazingly, there is no charge for admission!”
