The main exhibit building is over 100,000 square feet and houses 21 restored train cars and locomotives. Step aboard the beautifully restored Pullman sleeping car, the dining car showcasing the many different and very specific china sets used on railroads, and even the Railway Post Office car. Head upstairs to see an impressive collection of toy trains from many scales, and let the kids play with the multiple tables and tracks of Thomas the Train toys.
For an additional fee, take a train excursion ride along the Sacramento River.
