I RECEIVED AN EMAIL STATING THIS ATTRACTION WAS CLOSED, THE OWNER HAD PASSED AWAY AND LOCOMOTIVES WERE IN STORAGE. PLEASE LET ME KNOW OF ANY FURTHER INFORMATION. When his two favorite amusement parks closed down in the 1960's, Bob Stanton purchased the trains from them and installed them on his farm. He now has a mile-long loop completed around his property. If you stop by, he MAY offer to take you for a ride. Check out the above websites for more information.
