Additional Information for Onboard Dining Trains
Passengers are not able to choose their own seats using the WhistleTix reservation software. Seating is assigned by Mid-Continent staff to ensure that all the parties are seated at tables appropriate to the size of their party.
Mid-Continent’s dining trains use the long-time railroad tradition of community seating. This means separate parties may be seated at the same table (ex. two parties of two may be seated at a four-person table). In order to ensure proper seating for your dining experience we need the following information:
If the size of your group is 4 or less and you all wish to be seated at the same table, you should make a single reservation for all 4, or if making separate reservations you must notify us the name of the person(s) you wish to be seated with.
If it is your intent to have a group of 5 or more sit together, please call 608-522-4261 to place your reservation so we can more accurately accommodate your needs and instruct you on how to make your group’s reservation.
If you have young children and are in need of a high chair, booster seat or both, please call 608-522-4261; that way we can have the high chair and/or booster at your table prior to boarding.
If anyone in your party has mobility or handicap issues, please call 608-522-4261; that way we can seat you on a dining car that can accommodate a lift and seat that person closest to the door.
Our chef can usually accommodate most dietary issues if he has advance notice. If anyone in your party as dietary issues, when you make your reservation please call 608-522-4261 and let us know your dietary restriction(s). Then we will check with the chef to determine if he can accommodate your dietary needs.
If you are unable to make a call or receive a call during Mid-Continent’s normal business hours (8:30 AM to 4:30 PM), you may call after hours and leave a voice message on the phone. Please leave your name, phone number, when you are available for a return call, and a brief message. Someone from the Dining Services Department will contact you as soon as possible regarding your voice message.
