The Carillon Park Railroad was built with education by demonstration in mind: a complete operating 1/8th scale railroad with the sights and sounds of the railroad industry from its earliest days to the present. All locomotive types – steam, electric and diesel – are operated on the railroad and serve to both preserve and demonstrate historical technologies.

Typically holding games on Sundays, and during Carillon Historical Park’s main events, the Clodbuster Base Ball Club play 1860s base ball (spelled using two words until the 1880s).
