Passenger Schedule

Updated:   December 08, 2018      4:15 PM

Regular season (day time) public train runs are over for 2018. 

The Carillon Christmas Midnight Express train runs from 6 to 9 PM every night through Dec 30, except Dec 24 & 25 when the Park is closed.  Train rides are one dollar per ride per person.  Park admission or Dayton History membership is required separately.  Your train fares keep the trains running, thanks !   Season ride passes were only for the regular season (daytime) train runs and are NOT valid for the Holiday runs in the evening.

See our home page for info on the Carillon Christmas train runs.

Note:  The 2019 schedule is still being finalized.  When available this page will be updated.

   All funds from ticket sales and donations are used to buy fuel, maintain the locomotives, cars, track, grounds, maintenance equipment, and train facilities.  The entire railroad is maintained and operated by the all-volunteer members of the Carillon Park Rail and Steam Society (CPR&SS) club which is a separate entity from the Dayton Historical Park.  With your support, through ticket sales and donations, we can continue providing train rides.  Thank you !
