Flint Hills Express Excursion Run

Friday, July 26
$0 to $50
For a unique chapter of Kansas history, take the train!

The Abilene and Smoky Valley Railroad’s Flint Hills Express leaves Abilene’s 1887 Rock Island Depot. Order your tickets today and ride in heated and air-conditioned comfort in our remodeled Chicago and Northwestern 400 Streamliner car, or our prized 1902 MKT wooden passenger coach. Or you can ride outside in our converted open-air gondola cars. Board the train at Abilene’s historic Rock Island Depot for a two-hour trip through the Smoky Hill River Valley! At Enterprise, we’ll have a 30-minute layover, where you can tour the Hoffman Mill and shop in our country store that features several varieties of home-ground flour. Ride the rails of Kansas history on the A&SV’s Flint Hills Express! Locomotive passengers require close-toed shoes and Engineer approval of any rider under 16. Caboose and Locomotive rides are not accessible for mobility-impaired passengers. Locomotive and Caboose passengers under 11 require an adult rider to accompany them.
