    Yes, it is a great place. The Cornell Chapter NRHS had a trip down there just last weekend and we had a wonderful time. Stopped at Tyrone on the way and caught Amtrak boarding. Spent some time at the Museum and visited a number of places in the area where we could take pix. Of course, spent a lot of time at the Curve and saw several trains in both directions, including a couple of UPHILL light engine moves.
