About Us

Welcome to the St. Louis Iron Mountain Railway in Jackson Missouri.

We are an entertainment short line excursion railway that offers fun and unique adventures that can only be found on our historical tracks.  We are a 501(3)(C).  We are run entirely by volunteers. We host over 11,000 visitors a year, with the most being during Christmas. Come ride the rails with us!   

We love trains here at the Iron Mountain Railway! Especially our train, which is a traveling history museum with passenger cars that were made in 1926. Stepping back in time, we want you to make some memories as we travel along the tracks. 

The Iron Mountain is the only train we know of that is run entirely by volunteers.


We want our passengers to have a good time, and we work very hard to make that happen. It's not an ordinary train, there are lots of activities going on during our excursions. Our volunteers work very hard to make sure you enjoy your visit. Train robberies, treasure hunts, music, dinosaurs---you just never know who will show up for the ride.  But we guarantee it won't be ordinary. 

Every week we have a different theme for our 1pm trains. We host different activities, which center around the weekly theme. Dress up in character if you want, we always say "any day is a good day for a costume."  Be prepared for family fun. Come ride the rails with us!   


Be a part of Railroad History!

Since we are a volunteer railway, we are always looking for fun things to help us preserve the history of our tracks. We came up with a way to let you be a part of it as well.

 Help us by donating $20 to the railway and we will put a new railroad tie into service on our rail line in your honor.  A volunteer will paint your name on the railroad tie. Once we put your tie on the tracks we will send you a photo.

Come and buy a tie! It's only a $20 donation & you will get to be a part of railroad history. 

Ask about this when you arrive to the Depot or by phone.
