Miniature Train

A Wilson Landmark & Family Favorite for More Than 60 Years

Ask generations of Wilsonian’s about the Miniature Train and each person will describe a cherished memory with a wide smile on their face. For 60+ years the train has been a “staple of Wilson, and a piece of our history”, says Wilson Parks and Recreation programming coordinator, Dana Hall.

In 1954, the Kiwanis Club of Wilson paid $10,756.41 to build the 36-passenger train and lay the 1,150 feet of track. That first year the train was only open four months and boasted a total of 22,877 passengers. The train remains a family-oriented activity, because both children and adults can ride for only $2, a slight increase from the 10¢ ticket back in 1954. Numbers of kids’ birthday parties celebrate by riding the train. Families have
made a tradition of going every Sunday and travelers even pull off the highway to experience the miniature train.

Train Hours: Sundays Easter-Halloween 1:00 p.m.-5:00 p.m.
