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.
Mid-Continent's Autumn Color weekend includes a Friday and Saturday evening Dinner Train along with daytime coach and caboose trains on Saturday and Sunday, including daytime Friday departures.
On Saturday and Sunday, we offer First Class seating on the 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. departures. An evening Dinner Train is operated on Saturday evening using the First Class cars. Dinner Trains last 2-1/2 to 3 hours.
