This Saturday marks the kickoff to the 36th season of operations at the Boone & Scenic Valley Railroad & Museum in Boone, Iowa.
In addition to excursion train rides at 1:30 pm and 4:00 pm, and the dinner train at 5:00 pm, the railroad’s new Wolf Lunch Train will be making its debut. This train travels over the same route as the railroad’s popular dinner train, but offers you a choice of Pulled Pork, Pulled Chicken, or French Dip Sandwiches, or a vegetarian option of Mac and Cheese. Also included are two sides, a dessert, and a beverage. This 2+ hour ride is only $40 per person. Prepaid reservations are required, and may be made online, or by calling 1-800-626-0319. The railroad’s museum and gift shop will both be opening at 10:00 am on Saturday.
