Scenic Train Rides

 

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.

The train will make a brief layover stop at our halfway point where guests will be able to stretch their legs as the crew prepares the train for its return to French Lick.

Check out the Operating Calendar for a list of Scenic Excursion dates as well as the many other events offered on board the French Lick Scenic Railway.
