Train Engineer Experience

  Opened in 1908 to support Kosaka’s booming mining industry, the Kosaka Railroad was decommissioned and then given a second life as the Kosaka Rail Park. From spring to early winter guests can try driving a real diesel train inside the park.  During the winter months guests can clear the tracks with the snow plow engine!
