Our knowledgeable tour guides are available in the Lindburg Auto Center to answer your questions about our vintage vehicles. Public guided tours are available at 10 a.m. daily, no reservation required. Much of our extensive 70-piece locomotive collection is covered under the Roberts Pavilion, plus more nearby, for safe exploring. A tour guide is at hand at the pavilion ready to reply to your inquiries.
