!!!Hurricane Ian Recovery - Effective 11/17/2022 and Continuing until Further Notice!!!

Like many in Southwest Florida, the railroad continues to struggle with the after-affects of Hurricane Ian.   Seminole Gulf Railway lost several major bridges due to storm surge and flooding, including the spans over the Caloosahatchee River  that for so long have be part of the Murder Mystery Dinner Train experience.  Our Murder Mystery Dinner Train is still running, albeit on a shortened route, stopping now on the middle (and completely rebuilt) trestle of the Caloosahatchee.  The experience duration remains unchanged, offering the full murder mystery show and a delightful five-course dinner freshly prepared on board.

!!!Exciting Update for Summer 2024: Caloosahatchee River Crossing Reopening!!!!

We are excited to announce that the full route is set to reopen in Summer 2024. We appreciate your continued support and patience. Join us as we usher in a new chapter with the complete Caloosahatchee River crossing, promising more mystery and scenic delights. Stay tuned for updates as we approach the eagerly awaited reopening date!
