Advanced Reservations Required

Ride Alongside the Engineer

 

Savor the day with a diesel or steam engine ride-along where you’ll be seated between the engineer and conductor inside the cab of one of the Railroad’s classic “Old Girls.” You’ll start the day dressed in complimentary TSR safety gear, ready to assist the engineer and conductor in preparing for departure. When you return, you’ll receive a photograph of you and the crew along with a “Certificate of Completion,” numbered and signed by the General Manager, to commemorate the perfect day.
CAMERA USE – Due to the safety-sensitive nature of the operating crews’ responsibilities, the use of any type of electronic device, including cell phones, is prohibited while the train is in motion. Pictures may be taken only when the train is stopped and the engineer has given permission for use. All cab guests must follow crew instructions.
Advance reservations and a background check are required and some clothing restrictions apply.
