This place gets a 4 mostly for the delightful train enthusiasts who are here to talk to visitors and each other about their love of model trains. There are several models running, and a very elaborate Christmas train room, but the folksy train guys are the main draw. Come ready to visit and chat.
This is a neat little museum! Just getting to hear about the history of trains in Hagerstown is worth the stop. The models are intricate and all work. I can't wait to come back for Christmas!
