When we think of the Minnesota Transportation Museum, most of us think of the Jackson Street Roundhouse, but it also runs the Osceola & St Croix Valley Railway Train Excursions. These family-friendly train excursions provide passengers with an opportunity to ride the rails while enjoying Midwest seasons. In the summer take a special ride to watch fireworks; in the autumn ride the Fall Colors train or the Pumpkin Expression. There are pizza trains throughout the season.
The historic train runs every weekend from early May through late October through the scenic St. Croix Valley. Passengers are encouraged to get up and move around the train to learn a little more about railway history as they ride. Beverages and snacks are available for purchase in the concession car. Most trips are about an hour and a half and family-friendly. Riders are encouraged to dress causally in weather appropriate clothes.
