I have been riding this little train since I was a child. It brings back so many wonderful memories of reunions and picnics in the park that always included a ride on the Gypsy Express. My children, who are now adults, consider it a tradition to ride the train at least once while in Staunton. We all love it!

Our family has been visiting Staunton, VA for their annual Happy Birthday USA celebration since the 70's. Riding the train was a highlight for many generations of kids in our family. Several years ago, the community raised funds for a major renovation on the train area and it is really lovely. Such a nice job and clean, fun activity for kids (and young-at-heart adults - see the pictures!) Be sure to scream when you go through the tunnel!!! It's a great photo op!

Oh my! I rode this train when I was a little girl. We went to the park and they still have it running. Adults can ride to! Kids love the train! We use to yell real loud when going through the tunnel. PLEASE if you are in Staunton, VA take your kids to Gypsy Hill Park and ride the Gypsy Express. If you don't support the train then one day the train can be GONE...
