Santa train advance sales begin August 24 at 7pm.
Fall Color trains going fast
People are buying Fall Color Tour tickets sooner and faster than we expected, and many runs are sold out. Don't miss out! Make your plans and buy tickets soon. Or avoid the crazy rush and enjoy our Regular Season trains, which run on the same route this year.
Next Run August 23
Summer is a fantastic time to ride the Southern Michigan Railroad. Trains run from Clinton (on US-12) and cross farms, woods and the beautiful Red Mill pond. Next regular trains are Saturday August 23. You can reserve in advance or just come on down.
Summer trains depart at 11, 1 and 3 - from Clinton station, at
320 S. Division St., Clinton, MI 49236.
Most people will come in on US-12 - just turn at the Comerica bank and follow the tracks. You can't miss the rail yard. Other trains leave from different locations! Check your ticket!
Reservations available Now
Reservations are now available for the summer season. You can also reserve the very popular Fall Color Tours, and we recommend you do - advance sales sold out in a week last year. Note that Color Tours leave from a new location and use the Clinton route.
