Guy Stillman; a philanthropist, civic leader, and businessman, became interested in America's Railroad Heritage while studying at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.

Stillman's most enduring contribution to railroad lore, was building a complete railroad to precise scale for the enjoyment of his six children. The Paradise and Pacific Railroad, accurately duplicates a scaled down version of the Colorado narrow gauge railroad. The railroad also includes a depot, water tower, pump house, crossing stations and switches. Through efforts of the Scottsdale Railroad and Mechanical Society, the Paradise and Pacific Railroad has become the centerpiece of the park.
