Scottsdale, AZ - Sante Fe Passenger/Freight Station & Park. Over 45 Photos ;)

Recommended Posts

Located in Scottsdale, Arizona is a beautiful sized park hosted by nostalgic Railroad cars. I believe, this was once an old Train Station in its yesteryear. Alot, and I emphasize the word ALOT of kids in this park, because there is a train that gives rides, that cirlces the park ( 1 mile loop with spurs and all, pretty cool, and no I didn't ride. I felt I was 20 years to old to ride lol) Photo Opportunities were really cool though.

 

-2-6-0 Magma Arizona Railway Locomotive, coupled to a Sante Fe Pullman Baggage, and Observation Passenger Car.

-A Sante Fe Boxcar

-A few cabooses

-2 More Paradise & Pacific Railway Coaches (truckless)

 

The Sun was really strong today, so I attempted to keep the shots as clear as possible.

 

Enjoy!
