A wonderful experience. I really enjoyed the enthusiasm of the owner and his son. We had a great tour of the exhibits and learned of other railroad memorabilia that they will have to view in the future. The museum has an excellent display of dinner service items from the golden age of rail travel. Not only do you get to view it but they have the story behind the pieces which really adds to the experience.
