If your kids love trains, this activity is for you! From May through October, visitors can travel by miniature train during a public ride day held once a month at Indiana Live Steamers in Franklin, Indiana. 

INDIANA LIVE STEAMERS PUBLIC RIDES

Experience traveling by mini train on this miniature transportation network. The trains go about 5 miles per hour, and each scenic train ride covers about nine miles and takes about 20 minutes. Riders will go on a memorable journey through forested parkland, over several bridges, across wide open prairies, and along cattail-lined creeks.

Public loading is at the Platform Located by the McClain Cabin. Five generations of McClains were raised in this historic cabin, which is believed to be the oldest home in Johnson County. The cabin was moved to this site about 30 years ago. During the Heart Nut Festival the Cabin is used for displays and usually has weavers and spinners on the front porch.

Parking is available at the McClain Cabin Station. This is the place where all public passengers are required to board the train. Most passengers de-train at The Woodlands Station, a short walk to the McClain Cabin parking area. Other passengers may choose to disembark at either Nebo Station, or Whistle Stop Station.

To offset club expenses, a small fee is charged for the trip. The route costs $4 per person. The club can only accept cash for the fares.
