Three different railroads for your family to ride and huge machines working hard to entertain and educate your family. Each of our three railroads have their own story. The full size railroad is of very rare narrow gauge equipment from many counties which was used to haul freight and/or passengers for commerce. Our largest locomotive is a Shay type that hauled logs out of the mountains in the West. The medium sized vintage Kiddieland railroad provided entertainment as part of small amusement parks from the 1920s through the 1970s. One more small railroad (one-eighth scale) takes your family through the woods and on an under/over bridge route that is fun for “kids” of all ages. These trains are built by craftsmen and some even operate on steam power just like the full sized locomotives.

Kids fun and soda fountain too!
