  • This well preserved historic rail station is a great place to tour to learn about the early railroad days.  more »
  • It's a good place to get married and to have a business party. I've never had a bad experience there. Thank you and God bless you and have a great day.
  • A member of the party is a train enthusiast so we visited. This is an old Union Pacific station that currently houses Santa Fe Railroad memorabilia. A docent took us around telling us about the station in its "hey day". There was a baggage room, dining area and the waiting area. There is a model train on display that was working; there are lots of buildings around the display but it is hard to see everything as only two sides of the display allow you to "get close and personal". In the dining area, there are china settings on display as well as menus. The ceiling lights also have a train motif. This is a must see for all train enthusiasts.
