Due to an overwhelming response from an article published in the Chicago Tribune, we have temporarily suspended sales for our Guest Engineer Program. For those that have already made their purchase, please be aware that it may take several weeks for us to schedule and accomodate all of the time slots. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Climb aboard a real vintage diesel locomotive for a half hour of operation in our rail yard. Our Guest Engineer Program allows you to climb up into the cab of real diesel switch engine, pull back on the throttle, ring the bell and blow the horn. Learn how to handle a train with supervised engineer experience.
PLEASE NOTE: We will contact you to schedule a date and time that is most convenient for you, so please make sure that you provide valid contact information during checkout. We only operate on Saturdays and time slots are limited.
