Ok place

This is not too bad a place to eat but needs to be a little bit better at getting people from downstairs to the upper eating part

We spent a little more than 1 hour taking it easy while visiting indoor displays and the train outside. My kids had a great time playing with the telegraph sending each other messages in morse code. I'm not a train enthusiast at all but I recommend visiting this place.

Set in the Historic Rail Depot, it is full of exhibits of the RR. There is a caboose on display outside. This is still a stop for Amtrack.
