Michigan - Detroit Zoo Railroad

Detroit, MI - The Tauber Family Railroad has been a favorite at the Zoo, serving nearly half a million passengers each year, since it was presented by The Detroit News in 1931. Since then, nearly half a million passengers have ridden the wonderfully fun miniature railroad each year. The locomotives were refurbished in 2008 with new coaches, rebuilt engines, gears, gauges, wheels and bodies. All aboard!

Today's train consists of two complete trains of six coaches each and one standby. All three locomotives were donated by the Chrysler Corp. in the 1950s. In 1982-83, the locomotives were renovated and new coaches were fabricated through a fund-raising campaign by The Detroit Zoological Society and The Detroit News.
