What Time Does The Train Leave
While this sounds like a silly question, it does come up from time to time. Consistent with most rail travel, trains do operate on a timetable and, the 1:00 pm train really does LEAVE THE STATION at 1:00 pm.
The train typically begins boarding 20 – 30 minutes prior to departure and tickets are collected onboard the train. If you are parking your car at 1:00 pm, you will miss the train.
Parking is available in the depot parking lot. Parking is also available in the Blue Lot of the French Lick Resort. Those driving large vehicles such as large pickups, RVs, or any vehicle with a trailer must park in the Blue Lot. Parking at these locations is FREE.
