Family Summer Express Excursion
About The Tour
The Family Summer Express includes a round-trip excursion with a cast of charming characters and musical entertainment. This experience is perfect for families with children ten years and younger to share! Onboard excursion guides will serve you with local charm and knowledge. Enhance your tour by adding on our Chef-prepared, prairie-inspired lunch and sharing boxes to enjoy onboard along the way.
Breathe in the crisp, clean air, take in the expansive living skies. Out of your window, the vast and diverse agriculture, scenery, and wildlife are visible. Sit comfortably rocking to the train’s rhythm or explore each of our historic refurbished railcars. There’s much to discover aboard the Wheatland Express! Please stop by our 1950’s Diner Car to wet your whistle and grab a snack or visit the onboard Gift Store.
Fare includes 2.5-3 hour round-trip tour, face-painting, children’s entertainment, and treat.
Departures are available on the last weekend of each month, June through to August or all-year-round on a private charter.
