What a great train museum! There was plenty to see and do for young and old. 2nd floor of museum has LOTS of memorabilia from the Santa Fe plus other train items. Interesting historical readings. Look outside the back windows for a good view of the trains & tracks. For young kids, there's a play room with train toys. Outside there is a couple of old trains you can get up close to that are fenced in safely from the working track area. Our kids enjoyed walking the tracks, climbing aboard the engine car, and pulling a rope to make the bell ring! During our 1.5 hr visit, there were 3 trains that passed by, and all blew their horns and waved - fun! This place is an Amtrack stop, so we got to watch the passengers exit and enter the train, and the conductor yell "Aaalll Abooard!" as they were about to depart. Great show for the kids. The gift shop is chocked FULL of train gadgets, shirts, games, pins, cards, Thomas, toys...great place to get a gift for train lovers or bday party gift. Staff was friendly. Glad we stopped while travelling through town. Accessible, and free parking directly in front of museum.
