“The Train”
Reviewed 14 August 2012

If you like old trains you just came home. Old cargo station converted into place to see and now new station that might even become real railroad station. Kids can ride small train on weekends, Old train with dining cars you can go thru and steam engine you can also go thru and join the club and visit their store.
You can walk to stores and enjoy the old town that the railroad built.

“Fun for everyone...”
Reviewed 19 June 2012

This place was great! Coming from coal country in NE Ohio, my father loved not only the history lesson, but also being able to actually wander around the cars. The kids (8 and 11) had a great time and our guide was fantastic. I'm not sure who had the most fun on that small-scale model train we all got to ride around the train yard. They really have quite an impressive collection, and the coal cars rumbling down the tracks just added to the experience. Oh, and the beautifully restored station/gift shop really should be the official Clifton Forge Amtrak stop. Just sayin...

Fun little park setting with several pieces of railroad equipment, including a steam locomotive. Several reconstructed or refurbished railroad structures. Also, small scale steam railroad, museum and gift shop.

“Best rail musuem you will see...train rides for the kids too.”
Reviewed 11 May 2012

The charm of Clifton Forge, VA is wonderful. This museum has a guide on site and brings it to life for the visitor. A small train is available for the kids too, check operating hours. Dining on a one of the train cars is sometimes available. Downtown Clifton Forge is within walking distance too. Amtrack stops down from the museum also.
