What a big disappointment! The view was awe full. Broken down homes, junk and no real views of any foliage. Don’t waste your money or you time.

Museum is in restored RR station. Two NY Central diesels outside. Inside houses a huge mini RR. Also has 100's of firefighter's hats. Other firefighter equipment, model planes, lanterns, RR history. Great stop for train enthusiast.
