Did not have a lot that interested the children aged 14. Only spent a short time there. Really not too much to see. A couple of old train cars, the engine with a snow plow on it and the turntstile.

We enjoyed the nearly empty, slightly dusty but authentically-felt museum, with a knowledgeable guide walking us through the important rail history of Greenport. We were though puzzled by the placement of three railcars of questionable value, positioned so that they greatly obscured the beautiful and...More
