Here is a pic of one of the 36 inch 4-4-0 Crown locomotives at Kings Island theme park in Mason, Ohio.  They have two locomotives, 12 coaches and a little over a mile of track.  The Crowns were built for the park in 1972, and are propane fired.   I am going into my fourth season driving the trains.

That's really cool, sounds like a fun job!
In Calgary (near where I live) we have a place called Heritage Park which has restored steam locomotives, best part is they actually serve as a way to get around the park without tired feet!

Admission to Kings Island includes the Soak City water park.  The train, in addition to being a park ride, can be used to go back and forth between the two parks.
