Speeder Rides

Enjoy the thrill of riding a real motorized railcar. Railcars, or speeders as railroaders named them, are those little yellow or orange boxes with a putt-putt sound that you used to see on the railroad lines during the fifties and sixties. They transported the men and materials needed to repair the railroad tracks before the advent of the "hy-rail" truck.
Come join in the fun!
Please note:  There will be a regular train ride at 1 pm. Visit our Schedule & Ticket Info Page for more info.
