Please, always enjoy trains from a safe distance. Never encourage photos taken on train tracks. Not only are you trespassing, but you are risking your life.

It is NOT nostalgic, cute or romantic. Taking photos on railroad tracks is dangerous. It could be a matter of life or death. #SeeTracksThinkTrain

hi we need more rails and ales train rides
Great day
We showed up today thinking there was a tour, but it is not scheduled until the 15th. Otto spoke with us for a few minutes and then to our surprise and delight escorted us through a couple of the carts and to the restoration area. He shared a tremendous amount of information about the history of the trains, uses, purposes and timeframes. What a treasure this place is. I would highly recommend this for a weekend adventure. Such care and knowledge put into preserving the history of the trains. Thanks again for a great day Otto!
