"The scene resembles a rendering from a children's book: Sequestered on a suburban side street is a small park with a Victorian-style depot and a giant black locomotive. The grounds feel like a stage set—with a water tank above—and concealed speakers broadcast the sounds of a live steam engine. Glass cases inside the museum overflow with such collectibles as brass switch keys and conductor lanterns. Be sure to stop by the superb little toy shop."
