Men, women, children filled the park and were waiting with excitement to ride the train. The ride was short but enormous fun because of the great enthusiasm of the volunteers who run the ride. This attraction is located in a big park and is next to a public park with picnic benches all under giant old cottonwood trees. In addition... More

Perfect train ride for the little fans of Thomas. It also is a long ride, goes the length of the park and back not just a short circle. My 2 year old twin grandkids were estatic. Take the time and give your kids the thrill.

Limited operating hours are posted. Beware! My family and I made a special trip to this depot and were turned away on Saturday, 2/22/14. The cashier stated they stop tours at 3pm. The website says 4pm. So, either update your site or retrain your staff on customer service. We arrived at 3:30pm. If you're in desperate need of revenue, why... More

It was a beautiful day, somewhat cloudy, took a drive to check out the train depot. My son loves trains. He had a great ride on the passenger train however the cooler fancier train he really wanted to ride on was out of service. Overall, he got his fix. The excitement really happened when an actual real live train was... More

An old mans dream come true. Museum full on model trains and historic photographs. Volunteer run the place but the best part is riding the miniature trains thru the park

Everything makes this an enjoyable visit. The friendly people that work there, the fun trains that take you around the park, the old train depot, the real caboose outdoors, the great pictures and incredible model trains in the museum. I stop at The Toy Train Depot on every visit to Alamogordo. Ronald M.

Cute little site to check out. The building is the original train depot that went through the town and is a mini museum of toy trains. They also have a train ride that is fun to experience.

Took my uncle here, he loved trains. His favorite part was riding the little train. This place has great stuff for collectors and is super fun for the kids.
