Visitors to Watkins Regional Park this summer will surely delight in the brand new miniature train. A shiny red and black C.P. Huntington replica miniature locomotive, hand built by Chance Rides, is making its inaugural appearance on Opening Day of the 2018 Season. The new train is Number 399, meaning it is the 399th one built.
The Number 342 silver and black miniature locomotive that began running in the park in 2005 is alive and well and will be here for future use as a companion to the newer model. The original Number 81 red, white and blue locomotive that proudly served the park beginning in 1970 will now be on display in the park for photo opportunities.
Bring yourself, family and friends out to ride the rails winding through the woodlands offering a close-up view of Old Maryland Farm. Be on the look-out for the tree faces and wildlife along the way. The train is wheelchair accessible.
