Welcome to the Unofficial Crown Fansite

Worlds of Fun #33     Welcome to the unofficial website of Crown Metal Products. Between 1960 and the late 1980s, Crown produced over fifty steam locomotives for the amusement park industry. The engines ranged from small 15" gauge models to full size 36" gauge 4-4-0s. While Crown as a company ceased to exist in the early 1990s, most of their products continue to operate in parks around the country. This website is dedicated to sharing the story of Crown Metal Products with railfans everywhere.

Most of this site is still under construction. Please enjoy what is already here and check back for updates in the next few weeks.

The creation of this website would not have been possible without "A Short History of the 36" Crown Locomotives", by Dennis Larrick. This article is an authoritative technical description of the Crown locomotive and includes a detailed list of every 36" engine ever built. It can be found on Matt Conrad's Parktrains Website.

Thanks to Ed Kelley for providing the great icons like the one on this page.

About me: My name is Sam Shull and I am a 17 year old railfan from Omaha, NE. My greatest railroading interests are in narrow gauge steam and parktrains. I am currently a conductor on the Omaha Zoo's railroad (Crown #119) and hopefully I will learn to be a fireman and engineer next season. (Editor's Note: This web site was last updated in 2003).
