 Dinner Train


Enjoy a four-course meal with gracious service in a grand setting. Walkersville Southern Railroad operates dinner trains twice a month from May through November, in addition to a few special dinner train events. For 2019, we will host four Valentine's Day dinner trains, and one Costume Mystery dinner trains.  In addition, we offer dinner trains the first Saturday of each month from May through November and mystery dinner trains the third Saturday of each month from May through November. 

Board our richly restored 1920s-era dining car at the train station in Walkersville for 6 PM departure, and settle back and relax to fine dining throughout your leisurely two-hour train ride. We don't currently serve alcoholic beverages, but you are welcome to bring your own. (We do have wine glasses for your use.) We will return to the station at approximately 8 PM.  Links to our dinner menus are in the upper left corner of this page.  Beef dishes are cooked medium.

We have 10 tables in our dining car, each seating four persons. Dining car seating begins at 5:45 PM.  We're sorry that we cannot allow early seating as our wait staff will be very busy getting everything ready for your evening.  Once we have a complete guest list, we will assign seats based on the number of people in your party.  In the true spirit and tradition of railroad dining, you may be seated at a table with other guests if there are only two in your party and we have a sold out crowd. If you have three or four persons in your party, you will have a private table.

Dinner train tickets are $85.00 per person (including tax and gratuity), and $65.00 for children 12 and under. Mystery dinner train tickets are $96.00 per person (including tax and gratuity) and $75.00 for children 12 and under. We discourage patrons from bringing children that are too young to sit in a seat by themselves or who may not be able to sit reasonably quietly for two hours without disturbing other patrons. We do not have high chairs or booster seats. The children's menu is the same as the adult menu but with smaller portions. Keep in mind that we do not operate a full service restaurant and we may not have items that are not listed on the menu. If you require something special, please call us ahead of time.

Tickets may be purchased online or by calling 301-898-0899. The MENUS can be found at the top left hand corner of the page. No refunds will be given for any reason unless the train is cancelled. If you must cancel your reservation, please try to give us as much notice as possible. We can reschedule you for another date ONLY IF we are able to find someone to take your reservation.
