Allen Herschell

Common Name :
Iron Horse train

Conneaut Lake Park’s first miniature train was installed in 1904 and was located on the Free Act Lawn. From 1910 until the early 1940s the park went without a miniature train ride when the current miniature train tracks were constructed. Over the years the models of these trains have changed, reflecting the full sized models of their day. The current Iron Horse train, built by the Alan Hershell Company (the same company that built the Little Dipper in Kiddieland) was introduced. In 1992 the miniature train was renamed the Bessemer Railroad to reflect the early full sized railroads that once brought pleasure seekers to the Conneaut Lake Park resort.
