The Riverside Live Steamers attraction in Riverside’s Hunter Park dates back over 60 years. Well-known Riverside industrialist Joe Hunter wanted to preserve the history and excitement that came with seeing and hearing steam locomotives, and set aside 40 acres that surrounded his industrial complex to create a 4,300 foot railroad, locomotive, and three car setup.
After Mr. Hunter passed away, the Riverside Live Steamers organization took over maintaining and operating the train.
Over the past 40 years, RLS has added more than 5,000 feet of track and built three additional buildings and the station. Six more cars were built in 1972, and nowadays there will be three to four trains running at a time. These donation-based steam powered train rides are offered to the public on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.
