Carillon Historical Park is already the region’s premier history and holiday destination. By this time next year, the 65-acre Dayton History campus will also be known for its journey.

The Carillon Park Railroad, designed by Woolpert, is scheduled to open at the end of 2022. The 145-foot, approximately four-fifths-scale train will carry 120 passengers on a 3-foot-gauge, mile-long track. The train will provide a narrated tour and will run three times per hour, year-round, through the open-air museum, enabling guests to learn about everything from the Wright brothers to the Great Dayton Flood of 1913.

The train is being built by England-based Severn Lamb, the world leader in resort transportation, which has built trains for Disney Animal Kingdom in Florida, Tom’s Farms in California, and the Louisville and Fort Worth zoos. Managing Director Patrick Severn Lamb said the train is based on its “Jupiter” train, a classic Western American locomotive, and is being customized to represent the “Cincinnati” train.
