Take a Ride on the "Dummy" Railroad
Did you know?
The Rocky River Railroad, popularly referred to as a "Dummy" railroad because of it's short run (6 miles), carted passengers from West 58th Street in Cleveland the Rocky River beaches during the summer months.
Running between 1869–1881, it eventually shut down due to lack of business in the winter and sold off to the Nickel Plate Railway.
We love to imagine this train pulling up to the Cliff House, bringing eager beachgoers to our community. What fun!
