Get Your Family Fun On Track!
The Daisy Mountain Railroad is a 24 inch gauge railroad located in the community park at Anthem, Arizona, a planned community about 25 miles north of Phoenix.
The beautiful landscaping is a highlight of this park railroad. Featured on the DMRR 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 2800 feet of track is a modified dogbone design with a loop on each end. It carefully winds it way past a tiered seating area cut into a sloping hill, past skateboard ramps, softball and soccer fields, through the tunnel, along the catch and release lakes, by the depot and circles the children’s playground before slowing to a stop at the loading platform.
There is a challenging grade as the locomotive climbs the slope from the tunnel toward the loading platform. The tunnel is nicely done and serves as a secure storage facility for the railroad equipment when it isn’t operating. The loading platform is spacious, well-designed and attractive. Crossing signals flash and ring to warn of the oncoming train which only adds to the railroad ambiance. Altogether the leisurely ride lasts about 10 minutes.

What Customers Say
My family and I were watching movies of Tara and family members riding the train and playing in the park. What wonderful memories. We road the train, we laughed and we shared much joy. Melissa is to be highly commended for the experiences she provides for families at the Daisy Mountain Railroad.
Tara and her family are returning toIreland. But the beauty of holiday decorations at and around the Daisy Mountain Railroad, fun loving employees and most importantly the kind and caring attitude of Melissa toward our family’s experience was in large part because of Melissa.
Several of our neighbors recommended the experience at the Daisy Mountain Railroad and Melissa delivered! We had no idea that she was the energy and creativity until we probed to learn who put in so much effort in the park. It was Melissa.
Please communicate our warmest regards to Melissa and her team. And thank you for the safety and joy our family experienced withTaraduring the holidays and days following the New Year.”
