2022 schedule of trains (tentatively the same for 2023), along with convenient optional return times from Bentleyville:

Departure Times: Return Times:

Due to the historic nature of the railroad equipment and un-even surfaces leading to the boarding platform, this train is NOT wheelchair accessible. Strollers are allowed but must be able to fold up and be stowed on the train. Very uneven terrain for loading and unloading, and large strollers are NOT recommended. Children 2 and under are free and do not need tickets.

To do this train as well as the Christmas City Express: The Christmas City Express Story Performance and Train Ride has moved to the Duluth Depot (ONLY), and trains no longer depart from Fitgers, making the ability to do both on the same night very difficult.
