On Saturday October 1st, join us for a unique dining experience on board The Fall Sunset Dinner Train! Experience the bygone days of rail travel with an elegant three-course meal aboard one our restored Illinois Central dining cars. Guests can admire the fall scenery of Central Illinois while enjoying a dinner 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:

  • Filet Medallions (Gluten Free)

  • Pecan Chicken

  • Pasta Primavera (Gluten Free)

Each entree will be accompanied by a Zuppa Toscano Soup, Green Beans, Smashed Potatoes, Dinner Rolls, and your choice of homemade apple or cherry pie for dessert! Beverages available onboard will include various sodas, tea (sweet or unsweet), honey tea, lemonade, and water. All passengers are welcome to dress up for this classy event!

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 $70 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.
