  • Took our 3 year old train loving son here. He loved it. He did want to go in all the trains, but you can only go in a few. The guy doing the demo of the one engine was very friendly and let my son play with all the knobs and levers. Gift shop was nice and had some things that weren't too pricey.
  • I visited this place whilst on holiday in Pennsylvania, Although I am not a great train lover I was very impressed with this museum. Hours and hours must have been spent restoring and maintaining this massive amount of various locomotives. This is a real walk through the ages of American locomotives of which some you can walk in and explore. The venue is spotless with free parking and reasonable entry prices with veterans and elderly people subsidised. The guy on reception was really helpful like the rest of the volunteers who I met during my visit. The place is full of history and facts and well worth a visit if you like engineering, history and locomotives if you are in the area.
