I remember riding this as a kid. It was wonderful. I am glad to see they are still doing this! Everyone should go!

This is a wonderful museum that teaches about the history of railroads and the campo valley. The staff here is very friendly and knowledgeable. The hour long train ride is really great and they take you inside the tunnel separating Mexico and the USA. Picnic areas and a small play ground for kids make it a great place to spend the day with the family.

The train ride was great - taking you right to the US-Mexican border! The history presented along the way was very interesting, and the locomotives and cars in their display building were very interesting. A little out of the way, but definitely worth it!

First and foremost, Google Maps directions are now accurate. They will take you right to the depot. If you are into trains and train history this is the place for you. There are a lot of engines and rolling stock in various states of repair/decay. Most of them are right out where you can get right up next to them. There are hands on displays inside where you can see the workings of a mail car, and walk through a caboose and office car. The train trip is fun, but slow. Use the restroom before you go. There are sections of track that are under repair (as of May 2013) and the max speed through these sections is 5 mph. There is no place to turn around on the open stretch of track so the train is pushed by the loco all the way to the border and then pulled back to the depot. We spend the extra money and did the "cab ride" with the engineer. He let my son blow the horn at crossings and was very happy to share his experiences with us (between track updates from his conductor). Right now the museums track is "land locked". Track leading north runs into a condemned trestle bridge. To the south, the track leads to the border and a collapsed tunnel on the Mexico side. There are ongoing plans by the Mexican govt to excavate the collapsed tunnel into a "cut". This would allow the museum to negotiate track passage to Tecate at some point in the future. For now they just run from Campo to the the Division tunnel. If you love trains, this place will keep you busy.

The train ride was nice, the conductor had some interesting stories. be sure to use the bathrooms before getting on because all there is on is a porta-potty.
