When was the last time you left St. Louis Union Station on a real passenger train? Here is your chance to relive the experience, or experience it for the first time.
Enjoy a circle route trip around the Illinois side of the Mississippi River, including a spectacular view across the river of the Gateway Arch and downtown St. Louis.

The St. Louis Chapter National Railway Historical Society (NRHS), in cooperation with St. Louis Union Station and the Terminal Railroad Association of St. Louis (TRRA), is offering the chance to depart Union Station on a two-hour train ride around the Metro East. The train will depart from Union Station at 11:00 a.m. and cross the Mississippi River on the MacArthur and Merchants Bridges before returning to St. Louis Union Station about 1:00 p.m. The exact route is subject to change due to railroad traffic levels and Merchants Bridge construction.
