Overview

See the Cape by rail! The Cape Cod Central Railroad takes guests past marshes, cranberry bogs, dunes and other places only accessible by rail, but which ride to choose? Perhaps daytime narrated tales of the history of the canal and how cranberries are harvested? Or a relaxing weekday lunch or Sunday brunch is more your style? Maybe a sunset dinner train is just the ticket? We say why choose? Come explore all the Cape Cod Central Railroad has to offer. We run rain or shine. All aboard! Our award winning Elegant Dinner Train was featured among the top three dinner trains nationwide by TV Food Network's Dining on the Train. Join us for a gourmet meal as we journey through scenic Cape Cod and find out why.
