Very nice little train museum. If you enjoy trains this will whet your enthusiasm to visit even more train museums. Do not expect the Sacramento train collection or even Travel Town in Los Angeles. Still, a nice collection of trains.

There are railcars and locomotives you will not see in any other museum. Inexpensive and informative. Enjoy

I took my younger cousin here, he loves trains. He got to walk around inside the train and we brought him some stuff from the gift shop. He had fun. Anyone that loves trains its a great stop.

Nice display that was moved from downtown a dozen years ago. A place for the kids to check out some older rail stock.
