  • The information is very good. Oddly though I enjoyed the model trains the best. You can actually board a caboose and sleeper car. There is also a depot from Kress that you can enter.  more »
  • This place is a great store of information and a good place to see mini trains in huge layouts! Be sure to stop in when they Have their Harry Potter Event! Lots of cool stuff from all the volunteers.....  more »

  • I like loved this place. It was fun to go through and the lady even turned on the trains. There's a safe that you can try to open. I couldn't get it but it was fun trying. They had other hands on exhibits also bit that was my favorite. I loved going through the train out front too. And, of course, I rang the bell just inside. It's pretty loud lol. Can't wait to visit again.
  • Had an epic time here with my 8 year old bonus kid. The harry potter day was awesome!
