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.

Not cheap to see the museum, but the docents are informative, helpful and obviously like kids. We got to ride the roundabout and pushed lots of button to see lights and hear sirens.... 更多

There are many to scale displays of working train displays in the old Roundhouse. The volunteers are well versed in the train information. Some of them are retired railroad conductors and engineers. It is a lot fun and a great place for all ages.
