Closed, seems to be in renovations process…. or not opened anymore, nothing mentioned at the door.
If we are talking about the trains….only 3 very old trains that we can not visit because the installations is actually closed.
Nothing there. Doors to rail cars locked despite the power on and airconditioning running. Old station is now a meeting space and not used in any historical context. One information sign tells the only history available to be learned. Clearly the city doesn’t care about this site as any relevance to its past.
The trains were really cool. We went Tuesday around 5 and nobody was home, but still awesome to see these things up close. They had a lounge car up front and it was something out of a time machine, wish I could’ve gone inside. The main building looks like the Alamo, there were restrooms but everything was closed. I do not know if this place is still operational, but look at ths trains whenever you can.
Great historical place to go to learn about the history of the boca train museum. The interactive tour inside of the train reenacting the experience is very original and is a must do if you have kids or are taking students on a field trip. I would highly recommend this place for elementary students to go on a field trip.
