  • We enjoyed our visit. The model train exhibit must have taken many hours of construction as it is quite extensive. The guides were helpful and happy to share their knowledge. Many pictures and maps...  more »

  • Unless you are a well versed student of railway systems (and I'm not) much of the displays will be meaningless to you. The day that I went, the person on duty made a disparaging racist remark about black people. Then proceeded to ask me a lot of personal questions that didn't have anything to do with a railroad museum. There were some grown men in the back room playing with the model trains and having entirely too much fun with them. But aside from the usual Jackson stupidity, it is a tremendous resource for someone wanting a more than casual knowledge of the railroads ..
  • Great setup and depot is in great condition. Outside there is a caboose and passenger train car setup on rails. Pretty authentic look including a semaphore and other railroad signals. There are actually two cabooses and you can go inside both which is really neat and takes you back in time to the old days of railroading.
