  • Love the ride! The train museum is well worth the stop. We loved the model trains were wonderful. My mom is 91 and just wanted it to last longer. The kids we saw on the train with their parents were having a great time.
  • Very cool! Love the train car with the model trains running and the dozens of model train cars in the display cases on the wall. I could sit there for a while watching them run and checking out the detailed landscape.
