While on our journey to Denver Colorado, we stopped by to check this place out. As a train fan myself, I loved the fact that they have old fashioned trains and it's boxcars across the parking lot as an outdoor museum. We arrived there so early on Sunday morning that the place was closed at the time. What made it more enjoyable was the kids got to see how a train works in the rail yard right by this place. Beautiful spot for rail fans to come by and enjoy the scenery. Will have to stop by again someday to check out the place during open hours.
