Laupahoehoe Train Museum Review

Behind a stone loading platform of the once-famous Hawaii Consolidated Railway, constructed about 1900, the former manager's house is a poignant reminder of the era when sugar was the local cash crop. Today this museum displays artifacts from the sugar plantation era, the 1946 tsunami, local railway history, and the rich culture of the Hamakua Coast. The museum's Wye railyard has a vintage switch engine, large standard-gauge caboose, and narrow-gauge explosives box car. The trains even run a few yards along the restored tracks on special occasions.
