Sunset BBQ Dinner Train

Experience elegant dining on the rails as it was during the golden age of rail travel. This enchanting ride through the beautiful Des Moines River Valley features historic 1950’s passenger cars used on the Union Pacific Railroad’s famous “City of Los Angeles” and “City of San Francisco” streamliners, which traveled between Chicago and the west coast. This train crosses the 156′ tall Bass Point Creek High Bridge, as well as the Des Moines River, on its journey through the river valley.
