This Is The Place Heritage Park Train 119, Salt Lake City, Salt Lake county, Historical, Family, Children's Activities, EducationalIf this is your first visit to the Park, here’s a hint. Before you do anything else, ride the train around the Village to see all the Park has to offer. Then you can plan where and what you’d like to visit once you get off!

While not exact replicas, two of our train engines represent the Jupiter and 119 that met at Promontory Point, Utah, in 1869 to complete the first transcontinental railroad. The newest addition to our train fleet is the Blackhawk, named after the first train that completed the journey from Ogden, Utah to Salt Lake City. Additionally, a “mini-train”; on tracks runs around Settlers’ Pond especially for children to enjoy as part of their visit to the Park. Hear the clacking of the rails and the steam of the engine like days gone by.
