Railtown 1897 State Historic Park

Ride the rails on movie star trains

If you are feeling that this stop is slightly Hollywoodesque, you are correct; in fact it was Hollywood that saved this train from demolition—of course only to use her in the movies. Learn which movie stars rode this train, which films the trains appeared in, and how Hollywood saved the park from turning into a pile of junk. Thomas-loving kiddos will appreciate a real steam train ride.

Take a self-guided walking tour of the facilities, or a guided Roundhouse tour for a small fee. Steam train rides go six miles in 40 minutes.
