    The Horseshoe Curve is now open for the season. If you get a chance stop by and visit the Curve where you can enjoy one of the World’s most incredible engineering feats. Ride the Funicular or walk 194 beautiful landscaped steps to the tracks for a front seat view of a train mans’ wonder. You will also find the Horseshoe Curve to be a relaxing and entertaining place to enjoy a picnic lunch. While visiting, be sure to stop by the Visitors Center to view the descriptive displays that will help you better appreciate the work involved in building such a marvel. The Visitors Center also houses a gift shop of souvenirs for every railroad buff - from books to hats and sweatshirts. The snack bar serves hot dogs, hamburgers and ice cream.
