Climb aboard our time machine

What to expect

Riding aboard a vintage train can be an exciting and memorable occasion. Our events are meant to be sensory experiences – from the onboard accommodations and food service to the dramatic sights and sounds of a historic locomotive pulling the train. Passengers can enjoy standard accommodations in our open window coach or regular deluxe coach classes, or opt for a special experience on our open-air car or within our first-class lounge cars straight out of the 1940s and 50s. With the exception of our open window and open-air cars, all cars are climate controlled and restrooms are available on board throughout our train set.

Foodservice is generally only available in first class and lounge car accommodations, and available when specified as part of your ticket purchase. Please check the details for your tickets and trip, as onboard food may not always be available, and always make sure to check your email for your receipt and pre-trip instructions and information. Be sure to review our FAQs, safety-related items, and disclaimers located under the ticket information. We look forward to seeing you aboard!
