On Saturday July 30th, join us for the BBQ Train.  Ride in style on board one of our Illinois Central dining cars or our historic private car as you enjoy an American favorite.  Passengers on board will be treated to this delicious meal prepared by Holly's Country Kitchen of Monticello. This approximately two-hour train ride departs at 5:00 PM from the Wabash Depot in downtown Monticello.  

Ride in style as you enjoy one of the following entree options:

  • Brisket Sandwich

  • Pulled Pork Sandwich

  • Smoked Chicken Sandwhich

Each entrée will be accompanied by Smoked Mac and Cheese, Coleslaw, Cornbread, and your choice of Homemade Pie! Beverages available will be Sweet and Unsweet Tea, Lemonade and Water.

There are two classes of service available for this event:

  • Historic Dining Car - Enjoy your meal in the jovial atmosphere of an historic railroad dining car! The ticket price for this exciting event is $60 per passenger.  Please note that due to capacity constraints of the dining cars, parties of less than four may be seated onboard with passengers not necessarily from their party. If multiple members of a party desire to sit together, all tickets must be purchased in the same order.

  • Deluxe Private Car - Looking for a unique and intimate dining experience? You can enjoy an exclusive dinner experience aboard Illinois Central Business Car #7! This car features an 8-seat dining table and a 12-seat lounge with a fantastic view out the end of the train. Experience dining on the rails as railroad executives would have back in its heyday. Seating for this car is sold as 8 seats for the price of $650.
