My husband and I went to French Lick to ride the train. We drove down 3/4 of the way from NWI the night before, hit a couple of antique/resale shops and then enjoyed our first class train ride. It was very relaxing.

Nothing special about this scenic ride. In fact, not much to look at and rather boring. I think they should add more history during the ride.

Brief ride on the trolley car between French Lick and West Baden between the beautiful two old hotel resorts. It was a lovely ride after dark to see all of the Christmas decorations. Had a great time!

They have a websight that has fare prices and days of operation. I think it depends on what time of year you are looking to go.
