No one was around when I went in the week. Sign said it was open though. Massive yard and cool trains and carriages but no information on them so not worth going unless you can get a guide

Bit off the beaten path and we knew no train rides were offered on the day of our visit, but our docent had lots of colorful stories about the line’s history. One can also tour the rolling stock. They also maintain a private rail car...More

It’s a lengthy day to/from the winery near Cookeville, and the wine is so-so at best. Lunch there was good. Some were playing cornhole and other games outside, others walking through the vineyard, some waited inside for the train to return. Train speed is at...More

I've got to start off by saying this review is in no way a slam to Monterey (which is a quaint, small town that I would love to have had time to see); however, that being said this is not a trip for elderly folks,...More

Interesting enough musuem, but it is mainly a collection of equipment: locomotives, freight cars and passenger cars. Very little in the way of interpretive exhibits, so it helps if you know what you are looking at. The quality of your visit will be determined by...More
