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.
BUY A TIE
Be a part of Railroad History!
Since we are a volunteer railway, we are always looking for fun things to do to help preserve the history of the tracks. We came up with a way to let you be a part of it too! 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.
Ask about this when you arrive to the Depot or by phone.

Our two main cars are not air conditioned. Our train cars are over 97 years old and the air conditioning was considered as opening the windows back then, which is what we do. Does it get warm? Yes. But when we go down the tracks, there is a breeze. We have a one air conditioned car, which holds 65 passengers. If you must be in the air conditioning, please call before your train ride and also let our conductor know as you board.
