C & O Railway Heritage Center
Attraction details
Reviewed 26 May 2013

We arrived at the Heritage Center just as it was opening on a weekday. Our time was restricted (we had just an hour) so we took a very quick tour. The "Greenbriar" train is beautiful and the museum building is full of interesting relics of days gone by. The staff is knowledgeable and generous. We will definitely return to spend a morning or afternoon!

We had the pleasure of taking this tour and we're so glad we did. The tour guide was very passionate about the trains, and that made the tour even better. He showed us around and told stories of days gone by. He had the utmost pride in the engine and his love of the trains and knowledge Bd experience made the tour a 5 Star Tour.

What a great job this heritage center has done to their depot/shop and the railcars & engine that they have. A precious childrens train for children to ride . Great selection of gift items.

We were passing through on a Sunday morning. We are railfans and did not want to miss this museum. We realized it did not open until 1 PM on a Sunday, but thought there would be something to see. We were pleased with what was available to be seen without crossing the cordoned off areas. Great job presenting what you have. The station looks great! Wish we could have got into the freight shed and seen the rest of the stuff. Got a few photos of CSX freights working the yard next door.
We shall return some day to see it all. I can tell the hearts are committed to this place. Keep it up.
