Detroit City Zoo railroad: Still in business?
Posted by caboose63 on Sunday, April 08, 2018 9:45 PM

I have not been down to Detroit City Zoo in almost 40 years. I was wondering if their narrow gauge railroad is still in operation or abanonded. Also what other city zoos' excursion railroads in the USA are still in operation?

Milwaukee Public Zoo has a miniture railroad that you can ride around the zoo grounds with.

Cedar point on the shore of lake Erie has the last coal fired narrow gauge locomotives found in an amusement park.
