Now some of you are saying, “This is wonderful.  It is great that kids love this place.  However, I am not a kid nor do I have kids.  I want to see trains.  Therefore, there is no reason for me to visit this place.”

That is a great point.  However, there is something amazing about this museum.  What is amazing?  The museum is housed in four box cars that were once used on the railroad.  You going inside and look through each car each with an exhibit in it.  So when you visit the Youth Museum, you will be seeing trains.
