If you are a train-buff, this is a nice place to visit. Many original items to look at. If you go with a train-buff, grab a bench, read a book and relax.

This museum has a working, full size engine and caboose which you can take for a short ride. Also has a working blacksmith shop where they make the parts they need to repair their trains. A great and cheap place to visit.

This transportation museum offers walk-through self guided tours into historic train cars. The employees are amazing, and provide a great amount of information regarding old steam engines. It is very kid friendly. They also have a small play area for younger children.
