Whether you are planning a Convention, Wedding, Corporate Function, Anniversary, a Club or Group Outings or a Family Reunion we can help make it happen. If you are looking for something completely unique and memorable then why not charter your own train?
Working with our partners up the line including the Grosse Isle Heritage Site, the Grosse Isle Community Hall and Andersonís Hitch ín Post Ranch we can offer you an event your guests will be talking about for years to come.
Powered by our 1882 Steam Locomotive or one of our 1950s Diesel Engines, travel aboard our 1900 era beautifully restored passenger coaches which accommodate up to 300 passengers. Our train is available to charter weekdays and evenings along with weekends as long as a regular train is not running. Should there be a scheduled run that day then we can have the train available to you from 4:00PM onwards.
Let us take the stress out of the planning: you choose the date, your destination, the time you want to depart and the time you want to return and we will handle the rest. We can even arrange a robbery featuring Cowboys and Gals on horseback! They will take hostages of your choice to add to the excitement! We also work with many other entertainers who we can put you in contact with.
