McCormick-Stillman Railroad Park is found in Scottsdale, Arizona. It's a family oriented park, and a great place to let the little ones burn off some energy. Fortunately for us older kids, there is also a lot of historic equipment and even some RR buildings to keep us all happy.
Magma #6 steamer on static display. The mining road is no more, and this steamer at least has a safe place in the park.
The Roald Amundsen is a mid-century Pullman that at different times housed Presidents Hoover, Roosevelt, Truman, and Eisenhower. This was America's railroad version of Air Force One before there was such a thing.
This car is well worth seeing for the fine interior detailing that is still intact. The cooks area, sleeping and bathing rooms, and meeting areas are all visible and appointed. Here the dining room is set and looks pretty inviting:
For the Pullman fans, here is a map of the car's interior:
McCormick-Stillman Park has a lot more to offer the railfan. More in later posts, including ATSF buildings, an ATSF boxcar, and other cool goodies.
Oh, and did I mention you can ride multiple scales of live steam around the park?
