Ride the Carson and Mills Park Railroad

The Carson & Mills Park Railroad is a two-foot gauge railroad that the whole family can enjoy.  Ride behind a replica of a diesel switcher engine and choose between an open gondola or a covered passenger car.  The 1-1/4 mile ride takes you through beautiful Mills Park and lasts approximately 15 minutes.  Everyone is invited, especially children of all ages.

The Carson & Mills Park Railroad was built by a small group of railroad enthusiasts.  On July 4, 1981, the railroad operated for the first time and has never missed a season since.  The railroad is operated by the Carson City Railroad Association and all revenues generated go towards the improvement of the Carson & Mills Park Railroad.

Inside the Station is an operating HO scale railroad and the public is welcome to view it whenever the outside railroad is in operation.  The model railroad is 12x24 feet and includes a narrow gauge operation also.  A snack bar is available for your convenience.

The Carson & Mills Park Railroad entrance is located on Saliman Street 1/8 of a mile south of Highway 50 East in Carson City.  The Station is located next to the Pony Express Pavilion.  There is plenty of free parking next to the station which is located in Mills Park.

  • Hours of operation are Wednesdays from 2pm-7pm, Saturdays from 11am-7pm, and Sundays from 1pm-5pm. 
  • Admission is $2.00 per person and children two and under are free.
