Are you ready to take a trip back in time? Then visit the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum in northwest Indiana to enjoy one of our normal excursions or themed train rides! Situated near the former junction of the Erie, PRR, C&O, and NYC in historic North Judson, HVRM offers visitors a unique opportunity to experience the sights, sounds and smells of railroading during its heydays.

Travel through the rural farm country of northern Indiana. See flowers, butterflies, and wildlife as we travel through the remnants of the Grand Kankakee Marsh.
