Enjoy a four-course meal with gracious service in a grand setting. Board our richly restored 1920s-era dining cars at the train station in Walkersville for a 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 beer or wine (we have wine glasses avalable for your use). WE STRONGLY DISCOURAGE PATRONS FROM OVER-IMBIBING.  Please drink responsibly!  We will return to the station approximately 2 hours after departure.  Links to our dinner menus are in the upper left corner of this page.  All beef dishes are prepared medium unless otherwise requested.


We have 10 tables in our main dining car (Southampton) each seating up to four diners, and 5 tables in our newest dining car (Meadow Lark) each seating up to two diners. 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. 


Dinner train tickets are sold by the table, and prices vary based on the number of guests attending.  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 available. 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. 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.
