Fodor's Review

Housed in a replica of the town's 1880s-era train station, this museum in Dolores displays Galloping Goose No. 5, one of only seven specially designed engines built in the 1930s. The "Geese" were motored vehicles built from truck bodies that could operate for much less than steam-powered engines.
