All aboard for a little slice of history and Americana in the historic downtown district of Winter Garden at the Central Florida Railroad Museum. Housed inside a former Tavares & Gulf depot – which was built in 1913 – this charming little venue will delight choo-choo aficionados and history buffs of all ages. Memorabilia on display includes historic photographs, telephones and telegraphs, dining-car china and silver, uniforms and locomotive bells and whistles, among other things. Outside, an authentic caboose and three-head interlocking signal – along with several switch stands – are sure to inspire wonder or kindle fond memories of a simpler time in modern transportation. An extensive Lionel train set is on display inside, as well.
