Exhibits are well done. Price is reasonable. Here's a chance to learn some railroading history. The interactive feature controlling a train adds a nice touch. Easy to make you way through all there is to see.

This museum has alot to see. The best part is to get out into the train yard and see all of the different cars and engines they have. Charles Shawbs car the Loreto is very cool.

Great food at a good price
The service was great and they kept your coffee cup always filled up
50-60’s atmosphere hasn’t changed and wouldn’t want it to do so
Love “The Mess” eggs potatoes bacon altogether is my favorite

There were awesome exhibits in the museum, one allowed you to control a train and where it went and you had about a few seconds to choose where the correct place it should go is! Overall the whole place is nice and air conditioned. Easy to navigate, and clean! 100% recommended!
