Picnic Train
A picnic like you've never experienced before!


Trip Information

Our picnic train has become an extremely popular option for families near and far! Pack a lunch, and travel the same route, and in the same cars, as our Dinner and Dessert Trains. You will travel aboard the historic "City of San Francisco" or "City of Los Angeles" cars on a ride through the Des Moines River Valley.  We provide the table and the beautiful views, you provide the rest;  food is not provided.

Amenities

  • Cars are climate controlled (air conditioned and heated)
  • Cars feature restrooms
  • The rear of the train features a large observation platform, providing unparalleled views of the Des Moines River Valley.

Reservations

Reservations are strongly encouraged. For more information, or to make reservations, please call 1-800-626-0319 between 8:30am and 4:30pm (Central Time) Monday through Friday.

Accessibility

Unfortunately, due to the historic nature of these cars, they feature high steps and narrow hallways, and are not handicap accessible.
