Excursion Types



The French Lick Scenic Railway currently offers several different excursion experiences.  These include:

Scenic Train Rides

These rides are an 18-mile round trip (1-hour & 45 minutes in length)  into the corner of the Hoosier National Forest.  On the way you will pass by sites such as the 1850’s log cabin and through the 2200-foot long Burton Railroad Tunnel all while traveling through the Forest.

French Lick to Jasper Excursions

These trains are now slated to begin in late 2022.  You will board the train in French Lick for a full day excursion to Jasper.  While there you will be able to visit the historic Schaffer Barn, a mid-1800’s One Room School house, the Jasper Grist Mill, as well as the many shops and restaurants around the depot and Main Street area.

Dinner Trains

There will be no Dinner Trains offered in 2021.  Take your dinner plans to a whole new level.  Enjoy a 2-hour & 30-minute ride while dining on a scrumptious meal.

Tasting Trains

No matter if it is Chocolate or Bourbon that tickles your taste buds, indulge in your favorite liquor as the train rolls down the track.  Drinks are paired with small plates designed to compliment the spirits.  These rides last approximately 70 minutes.

Wild West Hold-ups

A scenic train ride with a bang!  Cowboys will rob the train and try to steal the payroll strongbox.  Hopefully the local Marshall can stop them before they do.  These rides typically last about 2 hours.
*Note: There will be no horses or other livestock featured in the 2021 Wild West Hold-ups.

Dinosaur Adventure Train

An adventure filled train ride with learning and MAMMOTH amounts of fun!


A family experience the that will make the book and movie come alive.  An immersive and interactive experience that will leave you with memories to last a lifetime.  These trips sell out well in advance.
