11:00 am - 1:00 pm | Recurring Event (See All)
The main events of our operating season are the 59 departures of our EnterTRAINment Excursions which run from May 3 through September 23. These trains give folks, who would rather have time to visit with their fellow travelers and family members, a chance to enjoy our vintage train ride without costumed characters, loud events or increased ticket prices.  They feature musicians from the Coopersville Farm Museum’s Tuesday Night Jams who play guitar and sing railroad and other fun songs.  Get ready for a rousing sing-along to “I’ve Been Working on the Railroad“, “Casey Jones” and “She’ll be Comin’ ’round the mountain”.  The 90-minute round-trip departs from historic, downtown Coopersville on Wednesdays and Saturdays.  During the journey, our friendly Conductor will talk about our hometown Rock ‘n Roll Superstar Del Shannon along with local railroad history.  We use the same vintage railroad cars and locomotive as we do on our special theme trains.  Some cars are almost 100 years old!  All have restrooms.  The windows open for a cool breeze as we pass through family-owned farms and fields.  Your light snacks are welcome aboard.
Railroad and other acoustic songs played by:  “The Singing Trainman”

Fares:  Adult $13.75 / Seniors (60+) $12.75 / Child (2-12) $11.75
