Overview

The Osceola & St Croix Valley Rail Road operates from May through October, departing from the Osceola Depot with alternating tourist runs to Marine-on-St Croix, Mn (11:00) Dresser, Wi (1:30) & again to M. "Specials" include Brunch (11:00) & Dinner Trains (5:00) on weekends, Mother's Day & Father's Day Brunch & Dinner, and Fall "Color Trains" with meal service. Brunch and Dinner Service is "First Class", with china, silver and fresh linens ready for use in the old "high dollar" tradition. We strive to meet the standards when service was an art and every journey included a trip to the dining car. We operate charters for community groups, corporate activities, church, graduation & retirement dinners, weddings, receptions and more. All equipment meets FRA standards for operation, and we make every effort to accommodate guests with physical issues. However, please note that certain pieces of our rolling stock are non-ADA compliant due to age and historic nature.

We boarded at Noon for a 90 minute trip. Our conductor was very knowledgeable and had a winning personality. It was a beautiful ride and I will definitely return in the Spring for the champagne and steak dinner ride.
