Do you love trains? Do your kids love trains? What train-loving kid doesn’t dream of owning their own iron horse? Ironhorse Railroad Park is Robert Thompson and Doug Alexander’s way of bringing their childhood dream of owning an iron horse to life. Over a number of decades, they amassed a collection of life-sized train memorabilia, including actual vintage cars and one restored depot dating back to 1895. Inside the depot, you can explore railroad-related artifacts while waiting to depart on a train ride that loops around the park. Beyond the depot, you can play around the trains and jump on and off steam locomotives and cabooses, pretending to be the engineer or a passenger.
