    The Railroad Museum in Sioux City is offering a new Ride the Rails Program that can not only provide you with a ride in the cab of our 1943 General Electric 45 ton switcher locomotive, but it could land you in the engineers seat with you actually operating the locomotive yourself. This is a rare opportunity for rail fans and visitors alike to actually drive a diesel locomotive.

    During each 2 hour long session the participants will be given 1 hour of basic instruction by our trained engineers while looking over the locomotive and learning how it works. Then it’s time to climb into the engineer’s seat and take the locomotive for a spin for another hour while your instructor watches over your shoulder ensuring safety and proper operation are always adhered to. In addition, each engineer participant will also receive an engineer’s cap and a certificate of accomplishment to serve as reminder of this unique experience that can be shared with friends and family for years to come.

    Up to four people may share each of the hour long time slots. In order to operate the locomotive you must be 18 years old or older, however, any people younger may ride along with an adult.

    The cost of this unique experience is $50 per engineer and $10 per passenger. This cost will help cover fuel and train crew costs. The program will run from 10 AM through 3 PM.

    Reservations are required in advance and are on a first come first serve basis. The locomotive will continue to operate unless severe weather approaches.

    Please contact the Railroad Museum, Sioux City at (712) 233-6996 to make your reservation or for answers to any additional questions that you may have.

Several different games and activities will be going on throughout the day. HOT food, beverages, and our fantastic Volunteer Bake Sale will also be available for an additional fee.
