There are many old trains (you even can step inside operator's place), train's accessories, railway's hardware (like lights, signs etc.) from Industrial Age till nowadays, with explanations how it works.
What can I say, this just made out children's day. For those with young children this is an absolute must and can keep them occupied for a few hours at least. Ours are 2.5 and 1.5 and they just loved walking around (slowly in some...More
