The Gold Coast Railroad Museum in southern Miami has several wood trainset layouts for visiting children to play with hands on! The layouts feature "Thomas" and other equipment, both free-wheeled and motorized. There is room for several children to play at once, and even seating areas for supervising adults. So bring the children for a fun and educational experience you can share with your family. The museum has freight cars, passenger cars, and locomotives to view on site. Train rides on the "Edwin Link Children's Railroad", or Link train, are regularly offered on weekends at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. The rides are suitable for both children and adults and consist of a 20-minute ride on 2-foot gauge track. The cost is $2.50 per person for all ages. Trains may run more frequently depending on crew availability and ridership. In cases of inclement weather, trains may be cancelled or rides may be substituted on standard gauge equipment when available. The Link train is available for birthday parties, groups, and special events with advance notice. The Gold Coast Railroad Museum houses quite an array of model railroads in many scales as well as priceless railroad paraphernalia. The various scales represented are N, HO, O27, and G scale. The collections and equipment on display have all been donated or loaned to the Museum to be displayed for the public's enjoyment in an air-conditioned exhibition building.  Museum, model building and tours are available as well as for fee activities. This venue hosts THOMAS THE TRAIN...see their website for dates/times and tickets!
