Train Schedules

Ready to ride the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in North Judson, Indiana? Then you'll definitely want to plan your visit around one of our popular tourist trains.

Ride behind a vintage diesel locomotive in various styles of railroad cabooses, an open-air sightseeing car or sit in the air-conditioned comfort of coach seating. Travel through the rural farm country of Starke and southern LaPorte Counties. Flowers, butterflies, wildlife and a variety of Indiana crops are visible from the train.

Our train schedule is subject to change without notice and we reserve the right to substitute equipment. Remember, all trains operate on Central Time (Chicago time). Please arrive at least 30 minutes early - late boarding is not permitted!
