Train Station

Just beyond the Little Europe sets and slightly south of the Court of Miracles sits a Train Station.

The tracks that the train used to run on travel from behind the Square of Warriors / Spartacus Square, past the station all the way through Denver Street to Six Points Texas barn. In the 1950s, the tracks continued to the New York Street area.
Most of the tracks now are covered with earth, but the photos at the end of this section show the remainder of the tracks visible today.
The former Runaway Train featured in the 1970s & 80s Studio Tour is sitting on the tracks at the Denver Street Freight Station just across the road from it's attraction position.
This station is a replica of the one destroyed in the 1967 fire.
