Fodor's Expert Review Balboa Park Miniature Railroad

Balboa Park and San Diego Zoo Transportation Site (Airport, Bus, Ferry, Train)

Adjacent to the zoo parking lot and across from the carousel, a pint-size 48-passenger train runs a ½-mile loop through four tree-filled acres of the park. The engine of this rare 1948 model train is one of only 50 left in the world.
