The Coopersville & Marne Railway offers a number of special events throughout the year, including the fall Pumpkin Train.
The Coopersville and Marne Railway continues to offer train rides and special events throughout the year.
The vintage train travels between the villages of Coopersville and Marne, following 7 miles of track originally built in 1858.
They offer much more than just a train ride. On most trains, musicians and actors get passengers involved in the fun during our 90-minute trip back in time.
Generations of families have enjoyed the special event trains for the past 30 years.
They offer seasonally themed train events and excursions throughout the year. Our theme trains, from the beginning of the season, are:
