Our train, is a traveling history museum with passenger cars that are 96 years old. 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 trained volunteers. Every person you meet is a person who volunteers their personal time to make sure we share a part of history with you. We want our passengers to have a good time, and we work very hard to make that happen. There are lots of activities going on during our excursions. 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.

You can help us by donating $20 to the railway,and we will put a new railroad tie into service on our rail line. Then we will honor you by painting your name on the tie. Once we put your tie in the tracks we will send you a photo. Come on buy a tie! It's only a $20 donations & you will be a part of history.
