Daisy Mountain Railroad
The Daisy Mountain Railroad is a 24-inch gauge railroad located in the Anthem Community Park at Anthem. Featured during the ride is a trestle across a small lake, a tunnel through a faux rock outcropping, lush green landscaping, several sparkling water falls and an eye-catching playground for young children.
The motive power on the line is provided by a steam-outline engine built by Jerry Shipman of J&E Enterprises in Chandler, Arizona. The engineer sits in the locomotive cab as the motor, which is actually in the tender, pushes the locomotive along the track. Three comfortable and well-built coaches and a caboose fill out the rolling stock roster.
The leisurely ride lasts about 10 minutes. For days and hours of operation for Daisy Mountain Railroad, check out the Resource Guide in Anthem’s Community Magazine, Freedom Way.
Cost: $2.55 (Anthem residents with ID); $3.05 (Non-residents); $25.00 (Book of 14 Tickets - only $1.79 per ride!). Click here for more information and detailed pricing.
