I’ve been to this one and it is part of a larger site: The Gold Coast Railway Museum. What is the level of standardization here over whether to put a specific element of a museum or just the whole museum? The danger of getting too specific: What if FDR’s train is part of a moving exhibit?


Hey again! The level of specificity is up to both our editors and the user’s submission. Sometimes we’ll focus on one special item, and sometimes we’re more interested in the location as a whole. It is generally handled on a case-by-case basis.
