  • It's free and hella sick. Stop by for a short 30 museum trip. Train switches are tubular
  • Great little museum with knowledgeable curators. They give a detailed tour of the building and operations, which includes a demo of the switches and breaker board. You even get to throw some of the levers yourself! The building is in good shape and it's clear a ton of love went into getting all the mechanical/electrical systems working again. Highly recommended for anyone interested in trains or the history of the area.
