Fodor's Review

Train-history buffs aren't the only ones who'll appreciate the three steam-driven locomotives on display here. The center, which runs mostly on donations, also plays host to diesel locomotives, historic passenger cars, and other nuggets of train days gone by. Littlest conductors may be upset to find that they can't climb aboard trains; consider waiting for an event when the trains are open for tours; or assuage frustrations with a visit to the gift shop, where you'll find

a good selection of souvenirs. The ORHC offers hugely popular, family-oriented "Holiday Express" excursions on weekends between Thanksgiving and Christmas, departing from the station at Oaks Amusement Park; check the website to reserve seats.
