There had been
railway that ran along the edge of the gardens for many, many
years, before even the oldest rides had been installed in
It ran from
Merrie England, near the Log Flume entrance, to a station
just below Forbidden Valley, offering visitors an alternative
to walking or taking the Sky Ride.
In 1997, the
route of the train was shortened, and only went as far as
a station in Gloomy Wood, although it seemed all for nothing.
In 1998 and 1999 the railway was closed, and finally in 2000,
the track was removed.
