The RR Park is wonderful. It is very clean and well maintained. It is definitely a destination for Train watching. Too bad F tower is no longer there though.

I first came out here in September 2015. I don't think there is any other place you can get right up to the train's. Seeing 5+ train's go by with in 30 mins is amazing for train buff's. Definitely worth the 3+ hour drive!
