Welcome to Veterans Memorial Railroad!


Special Announcement: July 9 Free Run Day CANCELED.

Veterans Memorial Park will be host to a State Tournament starting July 8, so we will not be able to safely operate the trains that day. There will just be too many visitors and children in the park. Please join us August 13, 2022! See you soon.

We Are Back! Come Ride Our Train!

A Free Public Run Day held monthly (March – November) on the second Saturday will resume on Saturday, March 12. Time: 11:00 A.M. – 3:00 P.M. EST Donations are greatly appreciated.

Veterans Memorial Park offers amenities for families: a nice playground, a large covered picnic pavilion, and one mile of a paved walking trail, all of which can be enjoyed at any time of the year.

Here’s a great idea!

Private Reservations: $150.00 for 1-2 rounds, effective March 1, 2022. This is a daytime ride only. Please call in advance to reserve your Birthday Party or special Family Gathering. The train will hold 30-35 people, depending on the number of adults and children. The No. 59, steam replica locomotive will be available for passengers to travel over one mile of track around Veterans Memorial Park. The ride is approximately 18-20 minutes.
