This attraction is now known as the Kansas Belle Dinner Train and has been relocated to Baldwin City Kansas. This page has been left for posterity and to send visitors on to the correct information.

Step up into the Fremont Dinner Train and lapse back in time to the 1940s. Our restored dining car, fine cuisine, elegant decor and music of that big band era will easily transport you!

The Fremont Dinner Train operates on 18-30 mile round trip up the beautiful Elkhorn Valley.

Although our Dinner Train runs on a Friday, Saturday and Sunday schedule, we often run the train during holiday periods as well as special days (New Year's Eve, Valentine's Day, etc.) when you just might be looking for something out of the ordinary to do.

Consider adding a live entertainment option (which is available on some of our runs.) Among our special event series are Murder Mystery Theaters, Melodramas, WWII U.S.O. Shows, Caberets & Wine Tasting DInners. Although they are an added fare, many people do enjoy this level of entertainment. We especially like to work with groups and the particular needs you might have, up to and including chartering your own railroad car or even the entire train!

Hopefully, we will see you on board soon. We think you will agree that it is an experience you will remember for a long time!

About our dining cars...
The Fremont Dinner Train currently operates four dining cars, all of which have their unique and distinct personalities. Elkhorn River was built in 1947 by Pullman Standard Co. for the Illinois Central Railroad. It was later sold to the Rock Island Railroad and converted into a diner. The decor in the diner is very traditional and is kept as historically accurate as possible. Throughout the car, you will notice pictures and posters depicting rail travel of the years past.

Companion car Maple Creek is a 1942 product of Canadian National Railways and later VIA Rail (Canada's national inter-city passenger train service). It was remodeled in 1988 into a bar/dining car with a retention of its Canadian heritage still in evidence.

Our third dining car, Rose Creek was built in 1947. It joined our car fleet in 1997, after a thorough reconstruction. Also, a former Canadian National and VIA car, it functions as a dining car and at times has a dance floor available.

The newest addition to the train, Fontanelle Springs, (built in 1956) is, again, a former Canadian National and VIA lounge/diner. A section of the car is used for dining, with a separate area used as a socializing point of the train.
