Surprisingly good times. Has old town feel. Park nearby with lots of open space to play frisbee or catch and a little creek for kids to play in. All safe

Great place for a train enthusiast. Enjoyed the ride and the knowledge of the engineers. Great fun to ride around the park and see all of the families enjoying each other and games like catch and tags. No electronics in sight.

When stopping for a meal in the middle of an urban town now where a railroad, who would expect to find an operating train and track? And one you can take the family on? This is a great find. Check the hours. Weekends only.

Taking a trip to the Poway-Midland Railroad is liking taking a step back in time. This beautifully-maintained steam engine is unlike anything else you will see in San Diego. The engineers are informed, helpful, and will provide you and your family with a tremendous ride!...More
