Maricopa Live Steamers Mini-Railroad.

Adobe Mountain Railroad Park

Model train park with The Maricopa Live Steamers Railroad Heritage Preservation Society. Free Train rides for families in a miniature "live train" (sort of a scaled-up toy train that families can ride) on 14 miles of track throughout a staged western landscape. Various western dioramas (mostly made of old Barbie dolls) are set up along the ride. Also a model train museum. Operates on Sunday only. Great fun - the kids loved it!
