  • We enjoyed our small stopover and had refreshments at the cafe. The station is beautiful with information about other great train stations displayed. Missed the museum because of time.  more »
  • Spent about an hour here and toured the museum, took a few pics with classic trains, and sat on the bench listening to the birds singing while viewing the bridge. The station was empty and peaceful.  more »
