Yuma Crossing Railroad is back in session

YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Yuma Crossing Railroad re-opened its public riding event on Saturday, November 12, 2022.

The ride is hosted by the Yuma Territory Live Steamers, an organization designed to create fun train riding opportunities on a life like track for the entire family 

The Yuma Territory Live Steamers are up and running from fall to spring.

With over 5,000 feet of train track in Riverside Park, the fun attraction is taking place just below the Yuma Territorial Prison on 205 Prison Hill Road.

For further context, the Yuma Territorial Live Steamers is a non-profit organization that hosts rides every second and fourth weekend of the month from October to May.

"It's $3 per ticket and we take donations we do want everyone to come. We will have on the 23rd and 24th of December, that weekends going to be Friday and Saturday and we will have Santa Claus here so everybody come on down and visit us," Nancy Wolf, Yuma Territory Live Steamers Secretary, spoke.

Furthermore, the purpose of the organization is to educate Yuma about the history and importance of American steam railroading both in Yuma and around the country.

"Donations help support the train, we have to fix the engines fix the tracks, but we're also trying to raise enough money to put in the station but of course, we haven't raised that yet," says Wolf.

The experience ensures enjoyment for all involved.
