After more than a million rides and the 11 years since it opened, the ZooTrain is in need of some enhancements. Just as is the case with commercial rail lines, the Zoo Train rail bed is regularly maintained and is now due for track bed maintenance. A new service spur will allow individual cars to be removed for service and lessen wear and tear on the engine.
