…And journey back to the days when the railroad was considered the most luxurious way to travel!

When you visit the French Lick Scenic Railway, you will ride aboard historic pieces of rail equipment on a 1 & 3/4 hour*, 18 mile round trip. While on your journey, the train will pass through portions of the Hoosier National Forest, the 2200 foot Burton Tunnel, and past impressive limestone rock cuts.

Aside from enjoying our daily train rides, throughout the year, the French Lick Scenic Railway holds special events that are fun for the whole family! Enjoy our Western Hold-ups, where a band of old time outlaws hold up the train and give a performance that will leave you cheering, YeeeeHaw!

We also host events such as the tasting trains, dinner trains and, THE POLAR EXPRESS™ Train Ride Train Ride during November to December. Click on the Special Events tab to learn more and reserve your tickets today.
