The RRMSF operates a 1/8th scale railroad through the North end of Lakes Park. The tracks are 7.5″ wide and the route is approximately one mile long. The trip takes roughly 15 minutes to ride through woods, lakes, small villages, and scenes. Tickets can be purchased for a small fee at the Museum ticket office located just across from the train station. We’re sorry, but pregnant women, persons weighing more than 250 pounds and children under the age of one are NOT allowed to ride.
Staff of the Railroad Museum of South Florida reserve the right to refuse riding privileges to anyone who does not abide by the rules. By boarding the train you release the Railroad Museum of South Florida from any and all accidents and losses. We ask you to stay sitting straight up, do not turn around, keep your feet on the running boards, do not put your hands down to get rocks or flowers and stay seated. Everyone will depart the train at the Unloading area; stay in place until the engineer gives all-clear to unload the train.
Group Rates (birthday parties, school groups, company picnics, etc.) are available. YOU MUST GIVE 48 HOURS ADVANCED NOTICE FOR GROUP RATES. Please call (239) 267-1905 during operating hours for more information and to make your reservation.
