  ******  There will also be train rides every night (weather permitting) during the “Carillon Christmas”  at Carillon Park from Nov 29 thru Dec 30. The official Carillon Tower lighting is scheduled for Nov 29th at 5:30 PM and is FREE to attend.  Paid admission or Dayton History membership is required to go inside the Park.  Train rides are inside the Park and will run from 6 to 9 PM.

Train rides are $1/person per ride  (children under 3 are free).  Please bring cash as we are not set up to take credit or debit cards yet (in work).   A family season pass for train rides for the REGULAR season dates listed below ONLY is available for $20 – inquire at the train loading station.   NOTE:  Season passes expire  Dec 9, 2017 which is our last regular run day.  Park admission is required separately and does not include Train Fares.

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.
