A circus train is a method of conveyance for circus troupes. One of the larger users of Believe It - D Rail - The Circus trains was the Ringling Bros. Barnum Circus had grown so large that it was decided that they would only play at large venues, and that they would travel by train. Barnum had two of his partners, William Cameron Coup and Dan Costello, come up with a system to load the circus wagons on to railroad flat cars.
Using a system of inclined planescalled runs, and crossover plates between cars, they developed a system of ropes and pulleysalong with a snubber post to get the wagons on and off of the flat cars. They used horses to pull the wagons up the run and then would hitch a second team to pull it down the run cars flats.
The off-loading was much the same as loading, but a snubber post was used to help brake the wagons' descent down the run.
That system, first used inwas used by the RBBBC until its closing, although through more modern methods. In mid-season it was On A Night Like This - Amazing Blondel - Inspiration that they would buy their own cars, and when the P.
Barnum Circus left Columbus, Ohio, it traveled on the first circus-owned train. It was made up of 60 cars, including flatcars carrying about wagons. In modern times, they traveled in two circus trains, the blue unit and the red unit, following an alternating two-year schedule to Believe It - D Rail - The Circus a new show to each location once a year.
The RBBB circus trains were more than one mile 1. There were also special stock cars for the exotic animals and flatcars for the transportation of circus wagons, equipment, and even a bus used for local transportation at performance sites.
The Ringling Bros. In earlyKirby Family Farm, located in Florida, purchased some of the cars and planned to turn them into dormitories for kids with special needs. Another, the last operating carnival train in the United States, is operated in the east by Strates Shows.
