School Bell Specials
Updated: MAY 26, 2017 7:20 PM
The next (& LAST) school run is on Friday, JUNE 02 from 10 AM to 1 PM.
The Carillon Park Rail and Steam Society (CPR&SS) provides train rides to school classes visiting the Park on Friday’s starting in April and running through the first week of June. Train runs are contingent on the WEATHER, operating equipment, and if adequate train support personnel are available (we are all volunteers).
Train Runs begin at 10 AM and end about 1 PM when the students have left for their bus rides back to school.
Riders MUST obey ALL rules and conduct themselves in a safe manner at all times on the train. A teacher or person in charge will be sitting in the last passenger seat to ensure everyone in the group behaves properly.
Riders must: SIT STILL, FACE FORWARD, KEEP THEIR FEET ON THE TRAIN CAR AT ALL TIMES, DO NOT LEAN OR ROCK TO THE SIDE, DO NOT GRAB FOR THINGS ALONG THE TRACK, AND KEEP THEIR HANDS AND FEET OFF OF OTHERS.
NOTE: Our conductor will be on the last car and will stop the train if any unsafe action is observed. We must be safe in order to keep operating the train rides. Thank you for your cooperation.
