You can charter your very own private passenger car for a few hours or an entire day! We’re excited to partner with the Norfolk & Western Business Car No. 300 Preservation Society, which offers guests a private, first-class experience on a Pullman business car originally constructed in 1917 and modernized in the 1950s.
During select events during the Indiana Rail Experience, you can add this car to host groups of up to 15 riders on nearly any train. For larger groups, an additional lounge car or passenger coach from our fleet can be added for groups between 28-70 people. All cars come with car hosts and staff and all onboard service amenities are tailored to your desired experience.
Current dates and events for the private car addition are June 30th, July 8th, July 9th, August 27th, August 28th, September 24th, and September 25th. Additional dates and times may be available and trip lengths and durations will vary. Availability is extremely limited.

Looking for a unique outing for your employees or company? In addition to chartering individual passenger cars, our train set is available for private functions and events with space for up to 230 passengers. We’ll work with you to plan a route and experience that will suit your vision best.
