TOPEKA (KSNT) – The Gage Park mini-train “Iron Horse” will make its last trip around the park this weekend, bringing an end to a 55-year streak.

Iron Horse will be active for the last time on Oct. 29 from 11 a.m. to 5:15 p.m. at Gage Park. The train, which was built to last only 20 years, will be replaced by a new electric train next year due to a lack of replacement parts, according to Shawnee County Parks & Rec. This new train will be made to look as close to Iron Horse as possible.

Staff with Shawnee County Parks and Recreation have done their best to keep the old engine running, going so far as to salvage parts and pieces where they could, according to Parks & Rec. Mechanic Dan Dodds took an alternator off of his own pickup truck to put on the train to keep it in motion.

Two engineers, Shane McCoy and Bill Hollingshead, will take the train on its final one-mile trip around Gage Park, Parks & Rec said. It has been tradition for children to ring the train’s bell in the past. However, this tradition ends this weekend as the new electric train will have programmed sounds instead.

Mike McLaughlin, Shawnee County Parks and Rec. Communications and Public Information Supervisor, told 27 News that they haven’t figured out a plan yet for the old train’s future.
