Last Public Ride Day for 2022!
November 19, 2022, will be the last free ride day for 2022. We will be running trains from 9 am to 2 pm. No reservations are needed, just come and enjoy the train rides with us. Rides last about 12-15 minutes and are 1 mile in length.
We also will be collecting for:
Toys for Tots, a 70-year national charitable program run by the U.S. Marine Corps Reserve, provides happiness and hope to less fortunate children during each Christmas holiday season. The toys, books, and other gifts collected and distributed by Marines and volunteers offer these children recognition, confidence, and a positive memory for a lifetime. We believe it is such experiences that help disadvantaged children become responsible citizens and caring members of their community. For more information, visit www.toysfortots.org
We look forward to seeing you at the track Saturday!

For More info check out their website  www.hals.org
