Rail & Steam Society Schedule

Held on Saturdays (and the occasional Sunday) from April–December, Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society miniature train rides are fun for the whole family. Established in 1984, CPRSS operates a 7.5 gauge (1/8th full-scale) miniature railroad at Carillon Historical Park.

Rides are $1 per person, per ride, and the funds directly support the Carillon Park Rail & Steam Society. Ride passes are also available.

Held each June, the CPRSS’s main event is Carillon Historical Park’s Rail Festival—a two-day family fun event featuring free miniature train rides, live steam engines, model train displays, historical displays, train merchandise, rail vendors, and much more.
