Great items for purchase, tons of info. Picture opportunities with the trains. Mention to the ladies about a commemorative coin if you go inside. Great little souvenir. ;) I've visited this place twice now, it calls me in every time I go visit my great friends when I need to escape my city home in Colorado Springs.

Very nice collection of railroad equipment. The cars are open to see the interiors. There is no charge but donations are welcome
