Sweet Ride Express Train

Date: July 25 - July 28, 2019
Come on and join us for a fun ride on a one-of-a-kind, 1850’s realistic-looking scaled passenger train from yesteryear. It is a trackless train (rubber tires allow it to operate on pavement and graded parking lots) that can carry up to 24 children at a time – adults can ride too!

The Sweet Ride Express is a custom-built train. The engine, coal car and passenger cars are modeled after an original 1850’s steam locomotive. They are engineered and built scaled replicas of actual old-timey train photos and sketches. The silver engine pulls a coal car followed by four, brightly colored passenger cars – a deep river blue, a laser yellow, a sun valley green – and of course, the last car is a fire engine red caboose!

When you board the train and get ready to leave the station, you’ll hear real sounds of train whistles and toots as the engineer calls out “all aboard”! As the steam engine gets started, you’ll hear it working hard, “chuff-chuff-chuffing” as it pulls away, sounds of the train running down the tracks along with crossing bell warnings through the speakers in each car.
