Station-Train

All aboard! This past weekend we took a drive up to Moberly to check out the Magic City Line Mini Train! What an amazing little treasure!

The train, rails, and gardens were built by volunteers. You can see how much the volunteers love seeing the smiles on the little faces going by!

The Magic City Line transports passengers of all ages. It’s a one+ mile trip through Rothwell Park. The train even has special seating for the elderly and for those with disabilities.

The train operates Sundays from 1 to 4:30 p.m., April through October. You can call the volunteer number to make sure it is open if the weather is questionable. Rides start at 1 p.m. with the last train departing the station at 4:15 p.m. Across the street from the train depot there are several swings and a playground! I love that they also have swings for smaller kids.

Directions – The Mini Train is located in Moberly’s beautiful Rothwell park. Enter from Highway 24 on the west edge of Moberly. Go past the municipal pool, 4-H grounds and the you will find the train depot next to the campground.
