The people, including both the workers and other customers are extremely kind. We were late but they still waited for us. So my tip, get there on time and talk with the volunteers and staff on board! They know a lot about the area and have a lot to share about the history and some cool things to keep an eye for!

About Osceola & St. Croix Valley Railway
In the early 20th century, trains chugged along the St. Croix Valley Railway, rolling over scenic bridges and past rolling waterfront vistas lined with trees. Today, an old-fashioned locomotive still runs from Osceola, Wisconsin to Marine on St. Croix, Minnesota—a 10-mile route that transports passengers across state lines and into the past. Inside the period-accurate passenger cars, Minnesota Transportation Museum staff relay facts about area history and refute the wildly inaccurate science in The Little Engine That Could. Regular round-trip rides run twice every Saturday and Sunday from May to October, but special-event trains and rides with dining service often round out the schedule.
