Welcome to our rail travelers paradise!
If you love sitting in your automobile for hours and hours, where the scenery of taillights and trucks on interstate highways never seem to end, traffic jams, getting lost, red lights, cramped backs and legs, then traveling by train is not for you!

Automobile travel creates Worries and stress which in turn creates more problems like when do we arrive, where do we park, where is the next rest area, when do we eat.

Let me introduce you to the easiest most relaxing, convenient and FUN way to get around on your next vacation or getaway weekend. On this and the following pages you'll find more information, where our trains can take you, what to do when you arrive at one of our exciting destinations but most of all how you can relax and truly enjoy your entire trip.

Now when you're ready to really slow down, relax and live a little on your next mini vacation, chances are we'll be ready to go when you are!!
