The Tauber Family Railroad has been a favorite at the Zoo, serving nearly half a million passengers each year, since it was presented by The Detroit News in 1931. Since then, nearly half a million passengers have ridden the wonderfully fun miniature railroad each year. The locomotives were refurbished in 2008 with new coaches, rebuilt engines, gears, gauges, wheels and bodies. All aboard!
