This is a truly wonderful museum. Most of their engines and cars are kept in the historic roundhouse where they can be touched and often walked in. This roundhouse has a working HAND-CRANKED turn table, though they only demonstrate it on certain weekends in summer. In another building, they have several huge (really huge) coal steam engines. They are longer than some commercial jets! And you can go into them to the engineers area where they used to shovel coal into the fire pit. We had a membership and made many visits. Only drawback: not much food vending available and none allowed to be brought in. We packed a cooler in the car and just ran out to the parking lot when we got hungry.

This place is the stuff that boys (little OR big) dreams are made of.... They have restored trains of all shapes, sizes, and uses to show the history of railroading, a shop where they are working on restoring more, as well as models to play with. The volunteer staff are knowledgeable and offer guided tours scheduled throughout the day. But the best part of a day spent here is the actual train ride! It's a great rainy or cold day destination as things are inside for the most part!
