This well-designed museum is ideal for railway buffs, with its 21 locomotives and railroad cars. The museum is located near the spot where the old transcontinental and Sacramento Valley railroad terminus used to be and covers a huge area with its 46 exhibits. Must-see attractions include the intriguing post office car, a first-class dining car and a sleeping car, with convincing simulations of the flashing lights of a passing town at night together with the ubiquitous swaying of the car.
