This is my dad and I on the train in 1974.  (Dan Weatherford and Crissy Weatherford-Adame). 
I have such good memories of visiting the train!!!

"This photo was probably taken in 1983 or '84. It's my brother and I. We spent a great deal of our childhood at Pioneer Park, and our favorite part of the park was the train. It's a shame that it has come to this. I used to love starting at one end of the train and climbing underneath it to the other end, pretending that if I didn't hurry the train would rumble to a start and I would be in grave danger. What fond memories I have of not only the train, but the fighter jet that once stood in the park, the lion head drinking fountain, and more!"  ~Andrea
