Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad Excursion Train

There are many steam trains that run across the Untied States for the enjoyment of tourists and history buffs. This train consists of a vintage diesel-electric locomotive, a century-old wooden sided passenger/diner, open air observation cars and a caboose. The excursion train travels through the Smoky Hill River Valley, between historic Abilene and Enterprise, a ten mile round trip.
The Train travels at a leisurely 10-15 miles an hour, so there is plenty of time for passengers to take pictures, and visit with the other passengers or train crew. Special charter trains available. Dinner trains in the spring and fall.
