Diesel Excursions

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 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 diesel excursions depart from our depot in North Judson and travel through the rural farm country of northern Indiana. Listen for the echoing horn as we travel along our historic railroad corridor.
