Monticello Railway Museum

The Museum is open for train rides on Saturdays and Sundays from May through 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.
