All Aboard! Enjoy a spectacular view of the Salt Lake Valley and the Park when you climb aboard one of our three replica trains. You’ll hear the story of the settlement, and see dozens of landmarks by riding one of the most popular features in the Park, the This Is The Place Railroad.
If this is your first visit to the Park, here’s a hint. Before you do anything else, ride the train around the Village to see all the Park has to offer. Then you can plan where and what you’d like to visit once you get off!
While not exact replicas, two of our train engines represent the Jupiter and 119 that met at Promontory Point, Utah, in 1869 to complete the first transcontinental railroad. The newest addition to our train fleet is the Blackhawk, named after the first train that completed the journey from Ogden, Utah to Salt Lake City. Additionally, a “mini-train”; on tracks runs around Settlers’ Pond especially for children to enjoy as part of their visit to the Park. Hear the clacking of the rails and the steam of the engine like days gone by.
