With a season beginning on 5/1/13, engineers rev up the old-fashioned locomotive engine of a 1920s-era train and transport passengers in vintage coach cars from Boone to the old coal-mining town of Fraser. The train includes a concessions car where passengers can purchase hot dogs and drinks, an open-air car for stunning views of the Des Moines River Valley, and a classic red caboose.
Guests can redeem museum passes on a separate day and return to the campus to explore the history of local railways. The museum’s artifacts, photographs, and historical documents—including a library dedicated to the museum’s subjects—uncover the motives and aspirations of the workers and industry tycoons who laid the tracks.
