We absolutely enjoyed going to Boone! Only thing we wish would have been better would have been the P. A. System on the train, it was a bit difficult to understand. Our 8 yr. old son loved it, We have already recommended this trip to others!

Have the museum open into the evening. We arrived a bit late and missed it because it was closed by the time the 4:00 ride was over.

With a season beginning on 5/1/13, engineers rev up the old-fashioned locomotive engine of a 1920s-era train and transport passengers in vintage coach cars from Boone to the old coal-mining town of Fraser. The train includes a concessions car where passengers can purchase hot dogs and drinks, an open-air car for stunning views of the Des Moines River Valley, and a classic red caboose. Guests can redeem museum passes on a separate day and return to the campus to explore the history of local railways. The museum’s artifacts, photographs, and historical documents—including a library dedicated to the museum’s subjects—uncover the motives and aspirations of the workers and industry tycoons who laid the tracks.

About Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad & Museum


Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad & Museum’s campus features 9,000 square feet of exhibits, classrooms, and libraries dedicated to all eras of Iowa’s railway history. But the museum campus is one part of the organization’s attractions, since the it keeps actual 1920s-era coach cars coasting the tracks, chugging past sights and recreating the experience railway riders have enjoyed for nearly 100 years. The ancient engine follows the tracks in the Des Moines River Valley, taking visitors to old coal towns or allowing them to soak in scenic views. After their ride, travelers can return to the museum, where they can view track equipment, ogle dining car china, or learn why one has to wear coveralls to steer a train.
