  • The ONLY reason I'm giving this AMAZING place 4 stars, instead of 5, is not because of the Museum itself, but for the lack of money invested into it. The trains are great, the layout is awesome, and all the workers are very informed. I just wish the outdoor area, looked a little better, and had more information posted. But in all honesty, this museum is AMAZING for both adults and children. It's also great for parties and photo shoots!
  • This place is desperate need of some kind of huge renovation. The trains are in terrible conditions. The is nothing to eat. No wonder you go and it is always empty. You will be the only car in the parking lot (not kidding)... I went to take a few pictures of my two year old daughter and when I was leaving I was told that next time I was going to be charged $50 dollars and hour because I had a professional camera. What!!!!????..... guess what there will be no next time...They should be ashamed to charge $20 admission to this abandoned yard with old rusted trains
