Clinton Fall Festival

R. MacDowell

is the biggest festival in Lenawee County and our Train Ride is just a few blocks away! There are arts and crafts, food vendors, car and tractors on display. Plenty of outdoor music and lots of childrens events and animals. Don't forget the Sunday afternoon parade! Learn more about the Clinton Fall Festival here or check out its Facebook Page.

Our trains run on Saturday and Sunday.

New in 2018

We had success in 2017, running trains more frequently on a shorter trip. The trip is about 2/3 the length, half the running time and skips the residential area of northside Tecumseh. We are deciding how to balance that popular service against running the commuter service out of Tecumseh.

We recommend to reserve in advance online or by phone at 734-396-0416. You can also walk-up, space allowing.

You book in the car you ride in. The open-air car is refundable for weather - so if you want to reserve your seat and still cancel for weather - book there!

Location

Departs our Clinton Station at 320 S. Division Street. Clinton 49236, southwest of Ypsilanti on US-12. Leave extra time to get around detours in Clinton for the festival, and for parking - PARKING IS A CHALLENGE!

Check with the office about FLAG STOPS along the route where you might board.

Dates

Saturday and Sunday, September 29 and 30

All seats all ages, round trip To Be Determined

Seats in the open-air gondola only are refundable for weather - either rain or temperatures under 50 at train time. This can be either actual weather, or that expected in the 24-hour forecast as of 24 hours prior to train. (we don't go farther out than that because of Michigan weather.) One refund per customer per season - do not book multiple dates. Call or email for refunds within 24 hours before, or 48 hours after train time.

Reserve online or by phone at 734-396-0416.
