Train rides for children
For many years a miniature train, which ran alongside the elephant's walking track, was a popular attraction for children at Melbourne Zoo.
The first circular railway track was set up in the elephant paddocks in 1905 and it could carry 10 children at a time. Over the years several different trains followed these tracks, carrying generation after generation of children.
