The museum owns 16 miles of an ex-Southern Railway and Monon line running from West Baden Springs in Orange County, through French Lick, then southwest to the towns of Cuzco and Dubois in Dubois County.
The track beyond Dubois is operated by the Dubois County Railroad, a for-profit subsidiary of the museum.
The museum operates the 10-mile stretch of the line between French Lick and Cuzco as a heritage railroad and carried approximately 23,000 passengers in 2004.
Excursions are based on a 20 mile round trip through portions of the scenic Hoosier National Forest and the 2200 foot Burton Tunnel and takes approximately 2 hours.
