The Toy Train Depot is small but fun. It has a Little museum in side with lots of neat trains. Old and new. The Train ride is fun. People are sweet and always wave to the kiddos as they ride by.

Nice little toy train depot. It was a great place if you like model trains but not for the full size. Ride outside went the length of the park.

It is a cute place and on certain days the "engineer" will take the kids for a mini train ride around the park. Good for stretching your legs a little. Just for kids. But still a cute place to kill a little time.

When we arrived we were told the toy train (inside) portion of the museum was closed. We had no advance notice of this closure (wasn't posted on social media). This was very disappointing since we drove 2 hours out of the way to visit this attraction. There was no specific reason for the closure of the inside of the museum.... More

We never left Alamogordo without riding the train around Alameda Park when my children were little. Despite the fact that they are teenagers now, they still enjoy the ride. For us, it's a must and a walk down memory lane.

I have zero interest in trains. My husband loves them. So the adult males in our party and my son went here while we went to the pistachio farm. We were to meet up here before driving to carlsbad. When we got here everyone was seated inside the mini train they have here yelling for us to buy tix and... More

The train displays themselves were dated and disappointing. The train we rode outside was great fun though.

Grandsons wanted to ride the train. They enjoyed it. Museum was a little dated but the older couple running it was very friendly and the gentleman running the trains was very knowledgeable about the models. Would recommend a picnic lunch in the park and then a visit to the museum and train.

Thank Carl S
