My husband really enjoyed looking around this museum and especially climbing onto the footplate of the steam engine. There is a fascinating display of artefacts, including some old uniforms. The staff are very knowledgeable and more than willing to answer questions.

Don't miss this museum. It is filled with objects from the past and so many different trains. The children LOVED this place. We will visit again when we go back.

We had to stop in this town due to a car issue and thought we would kill some time at this museum. It turned out to be one of the best rail museums we have been to and we'll worth the $12 family fee!
