Burlington, North Carolina City Park Train Ride

Posted: September 14, 2008 in Train Rides in NC

My grandparents lived in Burlington, NC. Some of my fondest memories of both my grandfathers involve trains. Papa Wink used to take me to the City Park there in Burlington where we would ride the little 24 gauge train that went around a big loop in the park, over a creek, through a little tunnel and into a fine looking station. The park also houses a vintage Merry-Go-Round that was assembled in the 50’s, but has even deeper history.

  

Going back to the park to take my son on that train ride was such an incredible experience. It brought back some very vivid memories of my grandfather and the times we spent riding that train. My son absolutely loved it and still does. We still visit often and even had his birthday there one year.
