The train cars are mostly open and you can just wander about them to see what rail travel was like back in the old days.
Later that same day we drove over into West Virginia to take a look at a town we'd been through years ago: Marlinton. They have a much smaller museum in their downtown area. Both have cabooses to view. But the ones in Clifton Forge have been completely restored, while the single caboose in Marlinton has only had the outside repainted while the interior is rather decayed. I suspect they're waiting for funds to fix it completely for viewing.
Two completely restored cabooses in Clifton Forge, Virginia.
|The little restored rail depot in Marlinton, WV. Very nice!|
|Caboose and two rail cars. Nicely restored on the outside.|
|But the interior of the caboose is a wreck.|
|It does look as if they may be starting interior restoration. It's a nice car.|
