“featuring running steam trains”
The R&GN is a 15-inch gauge railroad living museum offering fun for young and old. Ride our live steam trains along a 3 mile roadbed winding through scenic canyons, beautiful wooded areas, and majestic rock cuts beside the Dells of the Wisconsin River. Watch the locomotive being turned on a hand operated turntable at Western Springs, and turned again at the final stop at the Hyde Park depot. Before or after your ride, enjoy a picnic with your family, visit our exhibits and learning center, and stop by our Museum Store with your children for a wide selection of railroad and museum memorabilia, books and magazines, videos and music, hats and clothing for children and adults, and Thomas the Train Products™
This was by far one of the best places we stopped at on our trip. The volunteers were knowledgeable and friendly. One of them even got my son involved and had him help with the turntable. My son has autism so to include him had me at "Hello."
The trains are so fun and you can ride in a one as well. Keep in mind that they are not the size of large ones, even one has a steam engine.
The area is spacious and beautifully landscaped and kept. There is plenty of parking, even with a trailer. There are lots of buildings to look at and a great park setting.
This is a must see!
fun place to visit.
