The train was very nice to ride along an old route. AC cars or open air cars-you choose. The conductor was full of the history of the trains and how the museum came into existence. I would do this activity again.

Thank you for your review! We run the train on the historic Missouri Kansas & Texas (KATY) line. Unfortunately a lot of the track was removed decades ago and we are limited to what remains.

We have visited many railroad museums. I got the feeling, talking to a number of volunteers, and reading the brochure about their planned expansion on land the now own, that this museum has the energy to grow and become a major railroad attraction. The volunteers...More

Liked looking around at the 1930s to 1960s trains. Easy to walk areas, things for kids to see and touch.! Did not get to take train ride, but heard it good!
