Reserving Your Tickets

Mid-Continent has partnered with WhistleTix to provide a secure means of reserving your tickets online. A confirmation will be emailed to you upon completion on the reservation. Of course, you can still go to the ticket window of our historic 1894 depot (on days trains operate) to buy tickets (if available) or by calling our museum office at 800-930-1385 during weekday business hours. Tickets reserved via telephone or website are subject to a per-person Convenience Fee of $2-3. Fees vary by ticket type and age bracket.

Only onboard dining trains and special event days are made available for booking using the below interface. Reservations are not necessary for COACH class tickets during our daily summer trains (if reserving for a large group, please contact us). To reserve CABOOSE tickets or LOCOMOTIVE CAB tickets, please call us at 608-522-4261 or toll free 800-930-1385.

Onboard dining tickets are made available for booking four months prior to the event month. For example, October dinner trains become available for booking on June 1st.

Onboard Dining Seating

In order to ensure proper seating for your dining experience

  • If your party size is four or less and all are to be seated at the same table, all reservations must be entered together under one order.
  • If your party is five or more, please call 1-608-522-4261 to place your reservation so we can accurately accommodate your needs.

Mid-Continent’s onboard dining trains use the long-time railroad tradition of community seating. This means parties may be seated at the same table with other passengers.

We are handicap-accessible, and can accommodate most dietary needs. Please call 1-608-522-4261 if needed. Also, please advise if a high chair or booster chair is needed, and if a child under the age of 2 is in your party.
