Event Description:
There’s nothing comparable to enjoying the beautiful brilliant hues of autumn in the rural Sauk County countryside from the comfort of our restored vintage passenger cars. Join us for “leaf-peeping” in style along the unspoiled right-of-way of our historic former Chicago & North Western rail line.


SCHEDULE

Daytime coach and caboose trains operate on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, with each ride lasting 55 minutes. See the below schedule for full listing.

On Saturday and Sunday, First Class tickets are available on select departure times. Each First Class train ride lasts 55 minutes.

Autumn Color Weekend also features a Saturday evening Elegant Dinner Train, lasting 2 ½ to 3 hours.

COACH CLASS


Our standard fare, this is the way most people experience Mid-Continent Railway Museum’s demonstration train ride. Windows line the sides of the cars allowing excellent viewing of the fall colors. Conductors ride with passengers to collect tickets and answer questions about the history of the railroad.

FIRST CLASS

Enjoy being waited on by uniformed friendly staff. Hors d’ oeuvres and beverages are served in Soo Line #2017, a diner-lounge car built in 1914, and in the C&NW #440, a business car built in 1929. First-class service is available on the 11:20 a.m. and 1:10 p.m. trains, Saturday and Sunday only. Reservations are recommended. Call the museum office for additional details: 608-522-4261, or toll free: 800-930-1385.
