A very interesting site. On site guides very knowledgeable. Working model train set up in one room. This attraction would probably get more notice if it was moved to Casey Jones Village.

If you like old bus and train stations, this is a good place to visit. Sometimes Lunch is served in old caboose but need to check in advance.

If you are into train history come here. The supervisor is fantastic. He gave me an incredibly interesting tour and has an encyclopedic knowledge of the local rail history. Well worth a visit.
