If this is not a scam, it is close. Terrible try train set. Some random train stuff for sale. Nothing really very informative nor interesting. Do not get your hopes up.

We went here because my husband loves anything trains. It has a nice train set up. It looks like a nice place to take young children and where the local train club might meet.

Kids love it and the kid in all of us love it too. It hasn't got big trains. It's local with model railways. It's great for kids.

What a fun place to spend a morning for a birthday party! Thanks to the volunteers the kids had a wonderful time! Kids and train enthusiasts as well as local history buffs will enjoy the thoughtful intricate displays.

Went with a 2 year old, they loved it! Detailed G scale set up. Run by volunteers, we we're ignored... Was hoping to play with the G scale train but they let other visitors use it and they didn't want to share. Some other displays...More
