Ride the Railroad
Paradise & Pacific Railroad
The first attraction to the park continues to be its centerpiece. It’s built and operated as an exact 5:12 reproduction of a Colorado narrow gauge railroad. The railroad features three steam locomotives, 2 diesel engines, an electric engine, several scale model cars, a turntable, water tank, trestles, and a 32 x 200 train shed providing protection from the elements. The train shed also houses a complete machine shop for building and maintaining the railroad.
Scottsdale Charros Carousel
The beautifully carved and meticulously restored Scottsdale Charros Carousel was purchased by the Scottsdale Railroad and Mechanical Society with significant participation by the Scottsdale Charros, a local service group. Completed in 1950, it is registered with the National Carousel Association for the preservation of antique carousels. With 30 horses and 2 wheelchair chariots, it is a child’s delight!
