Snow Train™ – February 16-17, 2019
SNOW TRAIN 2019 HAS BEEN CANCELLED
This cancellation is necessary as we replace a 91-year-old wooden railroad bridge over Seeley Creek, located near the mid-point of the train ride route. We apologize for any inconvenience and hope you can join us when our line reopens and rides resume in May 2019.
Ride Amid a Winter Wonderland
Wintertime railroading is a unique experience one will never forget. Travel through the Winter Wonderland of scenic Sauk County on our 44th annual Snow Train. All cars are kept comfortably warm using the over century-old tradition of steam heating or coal-fired stoves.

Coach seating is available on all departures except during the Saturday evening Dinner Train. First Class tickets are available on the 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. departures each day.
