Buck Lake Ranch Railroad

I didn't know that the Cypress Gulch Railroad operated at Buck Lake Ranch. Was it 2' gauge? Those are mighty big hills for Steuben Co.

Anyone know the history?

To me it looks like the cars are lettered "National Park Railway". I didn't know Buck Lake Ranch had a railroad either.

Our family went there a few times c. 1960 and I remember seeing tracks but no trains. I'm not sure if it was operating at the time.
