Loved visiting this historic site. Very interesting to read about the history of the railroads and actually being able to see one in person was amazing. A definite walk through history and well worth the trip.

This is a great little local museum. The railroad is such a big part of our local history. They've done a great job of putting this together. Lots of memorabilia to gaze upon too.
