The 2021 Season is ON!

The Southern Michigan Railroad is open for business. Check our Summer Service page for the latest schedules and routes.

We must obey county health departmen├čt, FRA and TSA regulations. Right now, they are requiring reduced capacity, and MASKS ON THE TRAIN, except in "whole car" rentals which are one single family. We can't do anything about this. All our crew are volunteers, not employees!

About Our Excursions

An easy drive from Toledo, Jackson and Detroit, we offer passenger train tours during the summer months from the town of Clinton, Michigan. Fall Festivals there, and in nearby Tecumseh, draw quite a crowd on the train. October is a great time to enjoy a really unique view of the fall colors - from the train!

Except for Santa, most of our train trips are 45-minute to 1-hour round-trips. Groups and charters can contact us for special arrangements.

The historic railroad crosses the River Raisin as it winds through the scenic countryside and small towns from Clinton through Raisin Center.
