Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad

Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad

Abilene-And-Smoky-Valley-Railroad-Steam-Engine

Ride the rails on a 100-year-old steam engine, enjoy an open-air car ride or dine aboard one of the Abilene & Smoky Valley Railroad’s dinner trains. The train departs Abilene eastbound for a 10½ mile round trip through the Smoky Hill River Valley to the neighboring community of Enterprise, KS. In Enterprise, the train stops for riders to see the Hoffman Grist Mill, with a rebuilt working waterwheel that mills flour.

The railroad is operated by volunteers, which includes engineers, conductors, brakemen, car attendants that narrate every trip and depot workers. Volunteers also take care of the mechanical work and track maintenance.
