You start exploring history through railroad items from 1843, and then make your way right through to the present day. They have a display of model trains, as well as an operating "n" scale train layout.
Kids will also get a kick out of stepping into their caboose on display. They can sit in the actual seats, or even lie in a conductors bunk and just imagine what like would have been like as a railroad man!
