The Prairie Village, Herman and Milwakuee Railroad is a heritage railroad in Prairie Village, which is next to Lake Herman; it operates from May to September.[1] The railroad uses former Milwakuee Road trackage as its 2 mile line, and it operates one of the few remaining church railroad cars, the “Emmanuel”; it is also staffed entirely by volunteers. They operate two diesel engines, but have also set up steam engines for events.[2][3][4][5]
