Great museum with an interesting display. The showcase is walking around the roundhouse and climbing into the actual trains including historic sleeper cars steam engines and modern diesel locomotives. Helpful friendly knowledgeable staff. Must see attraction.

Enjoyed our tour through the Museum. Thanks Sandra and Harry for the time you both spent. Enjoyed crawling over and inspecting the old trains. Shame the other side (the maintenance part) wasn’t working at the time.
