Rail Festival Returns

Enjoy an entire day of fun for the whole family. Ride trains and trolleys all day long, plus a special mini "Run One"* where you can "take the throttle" on a real railroad locomotive under the supervision of one of our instructors (* there is an extra charge for this activity).   

There will be live bluegrass music, a special parade of Los Angeles trolleys on our "Loop Line", children's bouncy tents, handcar rides, exhibits from the Knott's Berry Farm railroad as well as other special features. 

There will also be food vendors on site for lunch. Both trolleys and diesel powered trains will operate on the mainline! 

This is a gated event, admission is $15 for adults, $10 children 5-11. This price includes unlimited rides on the trains and trolleys*. OERM members have free admission.
