Kansas City Northern Miniature Railroad

Managed by Kansas City Parks & Recreation

The Kansas City Northern Miniature Railroad is an all volunteer 501(c)3 non-profit corporation. The group was formed in 1984 when the Kansas City Parks & Recreation Department asked for volunteers to restore and operate the former Kansas City Zoo train that had been in Swope Park.

For .75 cents, you can ride a restored Miniature Train Company (MTC) or Allen Herschell G-16 train around a ½ mile of track.

Walking distance from Frank Vaydik Park and Line Creek Community Center, as well as the most scenic area of the Line Creek Trail, the Miniature Railroad is an ideal weekend destination for the entire family.


The Kansas City Northern Miniature Railroad is open from the first weekend in May until the last weekend in September.

Saturday 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM
Sunday   12:01 PM until 6:00 PM
Holidays   12:01 PM until 6:00 PM

Fare  is .75 cents per ride.
