Iron Mountain Railway

Jackson, MO, USA
About Iron Mountain Railway
Our train, is a traveling history museum with passenger cars that are 92 years old. Stepping back in time, we want you to make some memories as we travel along the tracks. The Iron Mountain is the only train we know of that is run entirely by trained volunteers. Every person you meet is a person who volunteers their personal time to make sure we share a part of history with you. We want our passengers to have a good time, and we work very hard to make that happen. There are lots of activities going on during our excursions. Trains robberies, treasure hunts, music, dinosaurs---you just never know who will show up for the ride. But we guarantee it won't be ordinary.

This would be a great way to have catering while the train is moving. Wine Festival or banquet for 5 0 people fits perfectly.
