Locals have done a wonderful job of restoration of the old Rock Island - Southern Pacific railroad depot in Santa Fe. Beautiful

You can tell that efforts are being put into the railroad museum and adjoining area at the depot. It's a classic and should be appreciated.

I Love trains. I enjoyed the attractions they had and felt it was worth the time. Also a great stop during the heat of the day.

I'm so sorry to be slow answering your questions. I've been away. There is no admission charge to the museum, but of course they will take donations.

No there is not. There is an old train car at another museum in town though. Can't remember the name but it's maybe 5 or 6 blocks south and east from the depot.
