The Carson and Mills Park Railroad Station will be open summer weekends from Memorial Day to Labor Day from 12 to 4 pm. Please visit the snack bar and the HO and N scale railroads inside the depot.
The two-foot Carson and Mills Park Railroad will not be in operation this summer because of track repair needs. Several sections of the track are not able to support the load of the train resulting in the train falling off the rails. Replacement railroad ties capable of holding the spikes and the rail are needed. The Carson City Railroad Association is currently raising funds to purchase replacement ties, and we would welcome any donations. There are over 2000 ties along the railroad, but we estimate that we need 260 ties and associated hardware to return the train to operation. The approximate cost would be $8,000 for this effort.
For additional information regarding donations, please visit the ‘Donate Today’ page.
