A NEW MINI TRAIN,
ROOTED IN TRADITION
The new Zilker Eagle honors the 60-year tradition of having a mini train in Zilker Park, while also looking to the future of this beloved park attraction. The name was chosen from over 700 submissions and voted on by over 7,000 Austinites, and hearkens back to both the original Zilker Mini Train and the passenger train that once graced the Missouri Pacific Railroad right here in Austin. With the help of renowned local design firm Frank & Victor, the new train has an identity as unique and inviting as Austin.
