Miniature Railway, House of David Park, Benton Harbor, Michigan

Miniature Railway, House of David Park, Benton Harbor, Michigan
"18. Miniature Railway, House of David Park."

Part of an amusement park that was opened in 1908 by the House of David religious commune, this miniature railway ceased operations when the park closed in 1972. Fortunately, however, the railroad was recently restored, and it reopened for rides in 2011.

For a history of the railway, see Dave Schoeffler's article, "The House of David Railroad," in Discover Live Steam: The On-Line Magazine of Rideable Model Railroading.
