The museum continues to expand it's inventory of engines and cars. As a kid these were the trains we would see. A great place to reminisce and share with the kids.

This museum was actually a surprise in that all of us enjoyed it. It's not just locomotives, you also get to see some fancy rail cars and learn about the famous people that used them. My favorite part was seeing the famous Sherman "necktie" though!...More
