We make Saturday afternoons so sweet! Enjoy a light snack and a scrumptious seasonal dessert (includes coffee, tea, milk, or soda) as you travel through the beautiful Des Moines River Valley in climate controlled comfort aboard the historic “City of San Francisco” or “City of Los Angeles” cars. This train crosses the 156′ tall Bass Point Creek High Bridge, as well as the Des Moines River, on its journey through the scenic Des Moines River Valley. After passing through the old coal mining town of Fraser, our dinner train climbs its way back out of the river valley on a fairly impressive grade. We will make our way across some of Iowa’s familiar farmland, eventually making our way to the end of our line at the unincorporated town of Wolf. At Wolf our crew will make preparations for the trip back down the hill, and soon we will begin our return trip to the depot at Boone.
