Thanks for the review! We have several locomotives to haul our public trains. We also offer Jr Engineer School on most Sundays so everyone can be a train engineer.

Only open September thru May, but had fun. You can ride several train loops throughout the park, they have a museum and little kids can learn to drive a train and earn a license. It's free and supported by donations. A lot of fun!
