FRENCH LICK SCENIC RAILWAY

Travel back in time on the Wild West Express train ride at the French Lick Scenic Railway. Round up your family for this fun-filled action adventure. Ride alongside outlaws and lawmen and get caught up in an old-fashioned robbery. But watch out, you’ll want to stand back as tensions rise and gunfire erupts at the Dirty Ace Saloon.

Please note, robbers do not actually take your wallet, purse, or take hostages.

*No horses or other livestock will be featured during these events.”

Climb aboard for a 1 hour and 45-minute journey through the hills and forests of Southern Indiana. The train departs from the historic 1907 Limestone depot located in the heart of French Lick, and only steps from the grand French Lick Hotel.

The trip will take you on a winding ride through the Hoosier National Forest, pass several sites of interest, and through the Burton Tunnel – the second longest railroad tunnel in the State of Indiana at just under 1/2-mile in length.

This 2.5-hour long experience is filled with a prehistoric adventure including a train ride to and from the Paleo Adventure Camp. While at the Paleo Adventure Camp explorers will be met with a plethora of activities including face painting, bounce houses, a LIVE reptile experience, a realistic dinosaur encounter, and MORE!

French Lick & West Baden was once known as the home to “America’s Laxative”. The Pluto Water slogan was “When nature wont, Pluto will.” At one point in time, 40-50 train cars were used to ship Pluto Water across the country. This “healing” water naturally contained sodium, magnesium sulfate, and lithium which produced a foul odor. This odor prompted people to say that the underworld couldn’t be far away.

Pluto, the Roman God of the Underworld became a staple symbol in our area. Ultimately, Pluto Water sales were stopped in 1971 when lithium became a controlled substance and was no longer allowed to be sold publicly. However, the Pluto symbol remains and can still be found in many areas locally.
