“A Small Museum but worth it.”
Reviewed 20 March 2014

We visited the Route 66 museum next door then we walked over to WARM, my son was looking at all the small trains especially the little train set they have in the lobby. After looking around the museum we walked over into the parking lot and climbed on a few of the engines out there and took a bunch of pictures. Then we walked over towards the track and watched the trains go by, my son got a kick of how when you wave at them they blast their horns, totally made his day.

“Interesting”
Reviewed 15 October 2013

I am not a railway enthusiast but nevertheless enjoyed the museum very much. Inside were displays of all old railway stuff and outside were old locomotives and carriages and boxcars. They are HUGE. The staff were friendly and helpful.

“Small but interesting”
Reviewed 9 October 2013

There is a lot packed away into a small area. A very nice model railroad layout to interest small and large kids alike. A nice collection of track vehicles. An extensive collection of communication equipment and dated tie spikes. Out side there are a few classic railroad cars and diesel locomotives.
