Some of its features include dining for up to 148 people on three vintage dining cars.

(Please note:  The Queen City Tavern will soon be sold to LM&M Railroad and joining us in early 2018 will be our newly acquired and totally refurbished car – the Oasis Tavern.)  The Silver Sword is our newest dining car to join our consist giving us additional dining, lounge, and a second bar area.  Also featured is our long distance coach car which can be enjoyed after dinner by our dining guests or booked as “train ride” only for folks just wanting to ride with no dinner.

Special group charters are available Sunday-Friday. Groups from 100 to 148 can charter the dinner train for their own dining rail adventure. Saturday nights will be reserved for the general public on a first come basis.  Coming soon is our end of train observation car which will feature private dining options.

We depart from the rear parking lot of Green Sales Company located at 2172 East Seymour Avenue, Cincinnati, OH 45237.  Look for the directional signs on the telephone poles and the red and white sandwich boards on Seymour Avenue.  Dinner Train passengers can enjoy free and guarded parking in the open lot provided. The train will depart promptly at 6:00PM and travel easterly to downtown Cincinnati, and then to the riverfront. There, our train will change directions to head back to Oakley. The excursion lasts a total of three hours. and fifteen minutes.

On board, we will serve four courses with choices of Oven Roasted Prime Rib, Salmon with a spicy hoisin glaze or Boneless Chicken Breast sautéed in white wine sauce. cincinnati-dinner-train-public-dining

Our 1940s style servers, porters, engineers, brakemen and conductors look forward to serving you as we all step back into the simpler and less complex times of the late 1940s.
