They have removed the cars from the tracks and haven't been in business for a few years now. There is talk of "someday" reopening the railroad however as another stated it really doesn't go "anywhere".

The train is not operating at this time and there is no information when it may start up again. The last time we were there the cars and locomotive were on display, though.

Had a really fun time. Very educational. The gentleman doing the narration was very knowledgable about the history of the Yuma area. Would say it is well worth doing.
