The train ride was perhaps the most interesting ride because it ran from outside the zoo, through and around the zoo and back out again. The lines for the train ride were long and the ride itself was full. Here the train had just returned and was unloading.

A seat at the back of the train gave the appearance of a caboose. It was the kind of rear facing platform at which a candiate might speak at a whistle stop.
