Montgomery Parks’ Miniature Trains

All Aboard!

Children and adults alike are captivated by our miniature trains running through Cabin John Regional Park and Wheaton Regional Park. The trains are replicas of the 1863 C.P. Huntington, a 4-2-4T steam locomotive purchased by the Southern Pacific Railroad and named in honor of Collis P. Huntington, President of the Southern Pacific Company.

The beautiful Ovid Hazen Wells Carousel was built by the Herschell Spillman-Company of Tonawanda, New York in 1915. It features 33 jumping horses, three zebras and two chariots! Learn more about the carousel on the Wheaton Train and Carousel page.

Spring Eye Spy Trains

March 23-31 and weekends in April.

Take a spring-themed ride aboard the miniature trains in Cabin John and Wheaton Regional Parks. Each rider is given an “Eye Spy” card with seasonal items to look for along the tracks during the ride.

Online tickets go on sale on Friday, March 8, 2024.
