Birthday Parties

Celebrate your next special day (birthdays, anniversaries, celebrations, meetings, etc.) in a dedicated stationary railcar at the Heart of Dixie Railroad Museum. Reserve this car on any Saturday during the season and receive 10 tickets for either the 10:00 AM or 1:00 PM Calera & Shelby Saturday train ride!

Come aboard with the other passengers that day on a beautiful countryside train ride that lasts approximately one hour. Only one party is scheduled per Saturday (non-special event days only), so the party car on the grounds is yours to use before and/or after the train ride.

Pricing per party is $300.00 and includes the stationary railcar, tables, chairs, electricity and 10 tickets to ride the train. All additional train tickets are discounted to only $10 each. A $100.00 non-refundable deposit is required to hold your date. This deposit is applied toward the total $300 price which is to be paid in full at the Depot ticket window at the time of picking up your party’s tickets to ride the train.

Contact the museum office at (205) 668-3435 for availability!

Note: The Party Car (Chair Car 2931) is a stationary vintage railcar located behind the gift shop. Due to its heritage, it is not handicap accessible.
