This delightful museum is rich with the history of Fennimore Railroad lore.
The Dinky Train is proudly displayed !
The historical society members running the museum were happy to take their picture with us. Such nice people! His name is Gerald Rossing, a retired contractor in Fennimore who now devotes time to the museum, along with his wife. After a few more customers came in, Gerald took us all for a train ride, $1 each.
After our ride we further explored the other exhibits.
We headed for home, on the way we passed another artifact of the steam Train era in Montfort. It was a Coal Tower. It used to hold coal to refuel the steam trains, perhaps even the very Dinky train we just saw. Kind of haunting in apearance.
We had a good trip and plan on returning soon as possible.
