About old Train:
A toy train with 3 coaches, with starting station 'Chandrapuri' near the main gate of zoo, was running daily and anyone could enjoy the train ride and have a look of whole Zoo. It was first was started in 1969 by the then Zoo Administration. The train was inaugurated on the Children's Day Nov. 14, 1969 by the then Chief Minister, U. P. The length of the train track is about 1.5 km. and has many crossings and signals. Rides start from Chandrapuri station and this toy train had been attracting huge visitors and proved to be an asset for the zoo over the years. It was most liked by children. It moved slowly and you could see almost all the wildlife and places of zoo during its round. Tickets were very nominal which can be purchased at the ticket Counter located at the left side of Chandrapuri Station.
: Just for a look - A British-era train is an added attraction for visitors to the city zoo. The train was shifted to the zoo from Maharajganj, where it was lying almost discarded. The train belongs to 1924-period and was mainly used for transportation of timber between Ikma and Chauraha over a track of 22.4 km. In 1978 it was brought over to the forest department for use but being an uneconomical option, it was decided in 1981 that it would be phased out.
Ah - No Elephants : The Lucknow Zoo has to unwillingly pull out its two elephants and sent them to two wildlife parks of the state due to an order of Central Zoo Authority. The elephants, who always drew children in very large number in the Zoo, have been sent, along with their Mahouts to Dudhwa National Park, Lakhimpur district and Katarniya Ghat Wildlife Park in Baharaich. Ah, kids visiting Lucknow Zoo, will miss them too much. The Machan- where children used to ride on elephants' back, is lying abandoned.
European Sculptures and excellent statues can be seen just adjacent to Museum and Pawanhans Plane. It is worth seeing.
