Glencoe has everything you want in a day trip

On a sunny Sunday afternoon, plan a hike for exercise, a train ride for adventure, and a picnic lunch in a park.

All of this can be done in Glencoe, Missouri.

The Wabash Frisco and Pacific Railroad is a 12-inch gauge miniature steam railroad that operates only on Sundays in May through October, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.  

The ride is a three+mile round trip lasting about 40 minutes and travels along the scenic Meramec River.

These railroad tracks run along an abandoned section of the Missouri Pacific Railroad that was originally built in 1854.  

Years later, the Missouri Pacific Railroad decided that a straight line is better than a long curve along the river and built two bridges over the Meramec River, thus abandoning a scenic section of track.
