Posted on 03/13/2020 by Visit French Lick West Baden

The Indiana Railway Museum has moved a few times, originally located in Westport, then moving to Greensburg in 1971, and now located in French Lick since its final move in 1978. The Scenic Railway operates passengers to over twenty-five miles of track. Come take a ride that harkens back travel from the past. Several wonderful excursions are available throughout the year, from laid-back to musically exciting. Hop aboard to experience an amazing ride.




Scenic Rides


This laid-back scenic ride takes you through the amazing backdrop of the rolling hills of southern Indiana, see the Hoosier National Forest like never before. Take a ride through the second longest tunnel, The Burton Tunnel and see an amazing waterfall (weather permitting). Travel in the same manner as relatives from the past, enjoying the view through a train window.


Dinner Trains

Wild West Hold-ups


A scenic ride with a bang. Cowboys will rob the train, just like those Old Western’s we’ve all enjoyed as a kid! See if the local Marshall can stop the varmints before they are successful. This 2-hour exhilarating ride is great for families.
