Experience riding behind our recently restored 1907 Southern 2-8-0 steam locomotive #401! 401 runs about once a month during our regular operating season.

Ticket prices are increased when 401 is pulling the train, as steam costs much more to operate than diesel — on an average day 401 goes through about 300 gallons of oil and 5000 gallons of water! Thanks for your understanding, and we look forward to seeing you.

Steam trains have been cancelled for 2020. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we've decided to start 401's mandatory 15-year teardown early. We apologize for the inconvenience.
