My husband is a huge railroad fan, so this was a must-see for us.
From my husband:
There is an operating turn table and steam engine, both of which were fun to experience. Many of the cars are in the process of being restored. Two small model train layouts (HO, n-scale) are also available for viewing.
I enjoyed the tour into some of the nicer cars. It was interesting to see what was considered fancy back then and to get some of the history. There were also a number of other buildings that housed various tools and machines used in the railroad industry. There were good placards explaining the information.
The only minor drawback was the somewhat random nature of the collection. There didn't seem to much of a theme other than trains, but we realize they're collecting whatever they can and it will take time to develop that.
HINT: While parking here is free, if you want to explore other parts of Savannah, stop by at the visitor's center across the street and pick up a parking pass. For only $6/day, you can park at any meter or public parking garage in the city. It's a steal and not widely publicized. In fact, the guy acted shock when we bought ours.
