First Class

First Class Service

Enjoy being waited on by uniformed friendly staff onboard our First Class trains. Hors d’ oeuvres and beverages are served in Soo Line #2017, a diner-lounge car built in 1914, and in the C&NW #440, a business car built in 1929.


All First Class trains depart from the North Freedom depot. Boarding generally begins 10-15 minutes prior to the scheduled departure time. First Class trains use the same seven-mile, 55 minute round-trip route as our standard Coach Class trains.
