With a season beginning in May, engineers rev up the old-fashioned locomotive engine of a 1920s-era train and transport up to 300 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. Trains depart at 1:30 p.m. on Saturday May 4, 11, and 18, and after Memorial Day, they run each day until October 31.

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 The museum’s artifacts, photographs, and historical documents—including a library dedicated to the museum’s subjects—uncover the motives and aspirations of the workers and industry tycoons who laid the tracks.
