RENO, Nev. (KRNV & MyNews4.com) -- The City of Reno is bringing the train at Idlewild Park out from winter storage this weekend.
The train offers a nostalgic ride that chugs through the most scenic parts of the park and will run daily from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., weather permitting, beginning Saturday, March 29 through Sunday, April 13.
From there, it will run on a weekend-only schedule through Memorial Day weekend. From May 27 through September 1, the train will operate Tuesday through Friday and on state holidays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Weekend hours will be 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
The cost to ride remains $2 per person. Children age 2 and younger can ride for free on the lap of a parent or guardian.
This year, the train will feature two rebuilt passenger cars courtesy of a grant from the Pennington Foundation recently approved by City Council, says Parks Manager Jeff Mann.
