Weekend Train Rides

Sunday, July 25th

The Museum is open for train rides on Saturdays and Sundays from May through early October. You may board the train at the Nelson Crossing depot (the main Museum site) or at the Wabash Depot in downtown Monticello. Layovers at either depot are encouraged. You can walk through the museum cars and view many pieces of rolling stock at the museum site, as well as visit the Museum's gift shop. Normally our trains are pulled by one of our vintage diesel locomotives. Our restored steam locomotive Southern #401 operates roughly once a month. To see dates for steam operation, see our steam schedule. Diesel cab rides are available on most trips on a first-come, first-serve basis for a $20 surcharge above the normal adult fare. Cab rides are not available on steam or special event weekends. A maximum of two cab riders can be accommodated per trip.

11:00 AM - 4:00 PM
Time Details:
Trains leave from both the museum and downtown Monticello starting at 11 AM at the museum site and ending at 4 PM at the Monticello Wabash Depot in Downtown Monticello.
