The Scottsdale Live Steamers operate miniature locomotives built 3/4 inch to 1 foot scale, and 1 1/2 inch to 1 foot scale. A train ride takes you on a 10 minute ride through the park's desert arboretum.
Live Steamers have been a staple at McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park since the park’s inception in 1975. Located next to the model railroad building, the Scottsdale Live Steamers Club provide rides on totally renovated track through the gorgeous 2 acre desert arboretum and features a covered loading platform, top-of-the-line storage and work facility, as well as an air conditioned club room in the model railroad building. With three tracks totalling more than 3,500 feet in length, the club provides rides on 1½ to 1 foot scale equipment on Sundays during the months of October through May and also provides rides each night during the annual Holiday Lights event at the park.
The club always welcomes new members to come out and enjoy the hobby. Imagine coming out and running trains followed by a visit to the park’s Hartley’s General Store for a hand dipped ice cream and drink!
