Arizona - Daisy Mountain Railroad

Anthem, AZ - The Daisy Mountain Railroad is a 24 inch gauge railroad located in the community park at Anthem, Arizona, a planned community about 25 miles north of Phoenix.

The beautiful landscaping is a highlight of this park railroad. Featured on the DMRR is a trestle across a small lake, a tunnel through a faux rock outcropping, lush green landscaping, several sparkling water falls and an eye-catching playground for young children.

The 2800 feet of track is a modified dogbone design with a loop on each end. It carefully winds it way past a tiered seating area cut into a sloping hill, past skateboard ramps, softball and soccer fields, through the tunnel, along the catch and release lakes, by the depot and circles the childrenís playground before slowing to a stop at the loading platform.

There is a challenging grade as the locomotive climbs the slope from the tunnel toward the loading platform. The tunnel is nicely done and serves as a secure storage facility for the railroad equipment when it isnít operating. The loading platform is spacious, well-designed and attractive. Crossing signals flash and ring to warn of the oncoming train which only adds to the railroad ambiance. Altogether the leisurely ride lasts about 10 minutes.

The Candy Cane Express runs during our Winter and Holiday hours. Come and enjoy festive lights and special treats and share in the beauty and joy of the Season!
