Train tracks lead into Parksley’s quaint town square where tiny shops and picture-perfect Victorian homes give the town the look of a model train village come to life. Step into the restored train station and step back in time when passengers purchased tickets or warmed themselves in front of the coal stoves. In the glory days of the iron horse 14 passenger trains a day stopped here. Today the train whistle can still be heard when the Eastern Shore Railroad passes through with freight cars. The main museum building is chock-full of railroad memorabilia from the many that operated on this peninsula since the mid-1800s. The 1927 Diplomat, an elegant parlor/lounge car, a jaunty 1949 caboose and a 1950 sleeper car are available for guided tours.
