The Mini Train is currently open for regular runs on Sundays from 1 to 4:30. If weather is threatening, please call the volunteer number. Extra volunteers are always needed, especially with our increased ridership this year (total paid riders for riders on the 4th of July was 655!). If you would like to volunteer, call (660) 263-7139 or leave a message with Parks & Rec at (660) 269-8705 x2040.
The Magic City Line transports passengers of all ages on a great adventure. The miniature train leaves Lions Station for a one plus mile trip through Rothwell Park. There are special seats available that make riding comfortable for the elderly and disabled.
The trains, rails, and gardens were built by volunteers of the Rothwell Park Railroad, often working with donated and shared materials. The group operates under the Moberly Friends of the Park Foundation, a 501c3 Missouri corporation. The railroad operates through the sale of rides or group events, donations, and grants.
The train operates every Sunday from April thru October. Rides are $2.50 each for children and adults, babies ride free with adult. Rides start at 1PM with the last train departing the station at 4:15PM.
Special group rides are available by appointment for 25 or more riders starting at $120. For more information on the Magic City Line mini-train or special rides, please call 660‑263‑7139.
