Give the gift of TRAINS!

Every train excursion offers a unique opportunity for experiences and memories that last a lifetime. Gift Certificates can be purchased here, and are applicable for a dollar amount to put towards an excursion. Certificates are valid for 3 years from the point of purchase. If you have a specific excursion in mind you want to gift (such as a dinner train), generally you can purchase it for the amount that the ride is with the sample pricing listed below. Surplus funds not used towards an excursion can be used for concessions on the train, or items in our giftshop. Choose from 3 delivery options: You can print the gift certificate at home, you can email it directly to a recipient, or we can print it for you and mail it to you.
