The Dinner Train
Experience elegant railroad dining as it was in the 1950′s. This relaxing two hour and thirty minute scenic ride through the Des Moines River Valley features historic 1950′s railcars which were used on the Union Pacific Railroad’s “City” trains. This train utilizes the same route as our 1920′s excursion trains, crossing the 156′ tall Bass Point Creek High Bridge on its way through the valley. Due to the age of these cars they are NOT handicap accessible. The train departs promptly at 5:30 PM. All tickets for all ages are $55 each.
