What to expect on the train...

Ever wonder how people traveled around West Michigan before the automobile? One way was the railroad. Experience a little time travel on the Coopersville and Marne Railway.​Our vintage train travels between the villages of Coopersville and Marne, following 7 miles of track originally built in 1858. We don't go very fast, but that's the whole point. Sit back, relax and enjoy a bygone era of travel. We offer much more than just a train ride. On most trains, musicians and actors get passengers involved in the fun during our 90-minute trip back in time. Everyone is guaranteed to have a smile on their face at the end of their journey.​ Generations of families have enjoyed our special event trains for the past 30 years. All aboard!
