Enjoy a scenic ride along the Meramec River in the mini train of the Wabash & Frisco Railroad. Trains pulled by historic live steam locomotives and diesels will take you on a 30-minute journey that travels just over two miles through the trees and along the bluffs of the Meramec River Valley.
Trains depart about every 20 minutes starting at 11 a.m. The final train leaves at 4:15 p.m. A $4 donation is requested per person. Children 3 and under ride free.
Sundays in October. 11 a.m. to 4:15 p.m. at the Wabash, Frisco & Pacific Railroad in Glencoe.
