This October, experience the autumn foliage of Northern Michigan in style with two upcoming excursions as part of the Steam Railroading Institute’s Fall Color Tours. Take in the color drenched beauty aboard our vintage passenger coaches or historic cabooses pulled by a Great Lakes Central DIESEL Locomotive. Enjoy a relaxing ride while visiting with friends, playing cards, snapping some pictures, or just settling in with a refreshing beverage and snack from our concession car.

On October 13th, board the Cadillac Limited at the Mountain Town Brewing Station in Mt. Pleasant for a 10:00 am departure and arrive in beautiful downtown Cadillac with an approximate three-and-a-half-hour layover for activities. Once arriving in Cadillac, take a short walk and you can visit local businesses, grab a bite to eat and take advantage of what this beautiful town has to offer! Itinerary information will be emailed in advance of the trip and also on board the train en route to Cadillac. Return arrival at Mount Pleasant will be at approximately 7:00 pm.

Tickets for the Cadillac Countryside Tour are $20 for coach class and $40 for caboose class. All tickets can be purchased at or by calling (989) 399-7589.
