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.

Wild West Hold-ups

A scenic train ride with a bang.  Cowboys on horseback 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.

Tasting Trains

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.

Dinner Trains

Take your dinner plans to a whole new level.  Enjoy a 2-hour & 30-minute ride while dining on a scrumptious meal.

French Lick to Jasper Excursions

These trains are also slated to begin in 2020.  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.  Check back for more details.

Dinosaur Adventure Train
