ONBOARD DINING – Mid-Continent’s onboard dining trains have been suspended since 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. While no dining trains are currently on the schedule for 2022, with the recent repeal of federal facemask mandates, we are currently looking into the possibility of adding trains in the coming months. If you wish to be notified of any additions to the schedule, sign up for our dining train notification list.
