Ride the Carson and Mills Park Railroad!
The Carson & Mills Park Railroad is a two-foot (narrow gauge) railroad that the whole family will enjoy. Ride behind a replica of a diesel switcher engine and choose an open gondola or a covered passenger car. The 1-1/4 mile trip takes you through beautiful Mills Park and lasts approximately 15 minutes. Everyone is invited, especially children of all ages.
Inside the Station is an operating HO scale railroad and the public is welcome to view it whenever the outside railroad is in operation. The model railroad is 12x24 feet and includes a narrow gauge operation. A snack bar is available for your convenience.
The Carson & Mills Park Railroad entrance is located on Saliman Street 1/8 of a mile south of Highway 50 East in Carson City. The Station is located next to the Pony Express Pavilion. There is plenty of free parking next to the station in Mills Park.
The Carson & Mills Park Railroad was built by a small group of railroad enthusiasts, using rail from the Carson & Colorado Railroad. On July 4, 1981, the railroad operated for the first time and has never missed a season since. The railroad is operated by the Carson City Railroad Association and all proceeds go towards the improvement of the Carson & Mills Park Railroad. Membership in the C.C.R.A is open to those who enjoy the romance and lore of trains, both large and small. Please visit the HO Railroad on our operating nights (Tuesdays).
