Небольшой интересный музей для тех, кто увлекается историей транспорта. Под открытым небом собрано примерно 20-25 локомотивов. В некоторые можно зайти внутрь. Экскурсовод увлекательно рассказывает про паровозы и отвечает на вопросы. Минус - отсутствие туалета. Interesting small museum for those who likes history of transportation. Outdoor...More

It's a very nice open air museum, you can see many old trains there which are really impressive and huge. The only and main downside is that the most of the trains are locked and you can't get inside. What's the point of that? Every...More
