California - Adventure City
Anaheim, CA - (Click on rides, then "express train" to view the train.) This special train was built in 1938 and was the main attraction of Hobby City for almost 25 years before Adventure City was built in 1994. After extending its rails, the "Adventure City Express" now gives guests a full-circle tour of the park. Of course, no train station would be complete without conductor calls over the loud speaker and "Chattanooga- Choo-Choo" playing in the background.

This train appears to be a Hurlbutt 2-4-2, in any case it's a very nice classic park train.

California - Calico Ghost Town
Yermo, CA - Calico Odessa Railroad. Take an historical tour on a train similar to those used in early mining. Calico is an old West mining town that has been around since 1881 during the largest silver strike in California. With its 500 mines, Calico produced over $20 million in silver ore over a 12-year span. When silver lost its value in the mid-1890's, Calico lost its population. The miner's packed up, loaded their mules and moved away abandoning the town that once gave them a good living. It became a "ghost town."

Walter Knott purchased Calico in the 1950's architecturally restoring all but the five original buildings to look as they did in the 1880's. Calico received State Historical Landmark 782 and in 2005 was proclaimed by then Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger to be California's Silver Rush Ghost Town.

Today Calico is part of the San Bernardino County Regional Parks system visited by people from around the country and all over the world.

California - Disneyland Railroad
Anaheim, CA - Celebrate Americana—and all things red, white and blue—as you steam away on a vintage train for a full circle tour of Disneyland Park

Embark on a relaxing 18-minute, 1.2-mile scenic tour onboard an authentic steam-powered train.

Listen to the clamor of the engine, the chug of the wheels and the call of the whistle as you travel aboard the Disneyland Railroad! Offering convenient stops at New Orleans Square, Tomorrowland, Mickey’s Toontown and Main Street, U.S.A., it's the perfect way to preview the magic at Disneyland Park and take in the picturesque scenery.

The Disneyland Railroad is also a handy way to get around quickly and easily. And because the trains are scheduled to arrive every 5 to 10 minutes at most times throughout the day, you’ll have just enough time to take in all the sights at your station before you board!

Blast from the Past
There are 5 meticulously restored, working narrow-gauge trains you can ride. Each includes 4 sets of passenger cars and has been named after a careful selection of locomotive legends. The lone exception is the Ward Kimball, which was named after the Disney Animator who fostered Walt Disney’s passion for the railway.

This is pretty much the gold standard for park trains, with authentic 3 foot gauge steam locomotives in immaculate condition.
