Current exhibits, spacious picnic grounds, a tour of our Carhouse 3, and a 11-mile round trip ride on our restored historic electric rail cars are all included in the reservation fee. Additional amenities or activities or catering options may be accommodated upon request. Our private train charters are staffed by attendants formally dressed in train conductor uniforms, and take place aboard our 1914 Salt Lake and Utah Railroad parlor observation car #751 (seats 38). A second car that seats an additional 50 is available to accommodate larger groups. Passengers board 30 minutes before departure and then enjoy an hour long, 11 mile round trip ride.
