About Us


We hope that every train ride you go on will give you a sense of the passion we have for trains and our desire to share that with others. 

Our Story

Where It All Began

As a young boy, I often walked by the railways in southeastern Indiana dreaming about riding to faraway places. After graduating from high school, I joined the United States Air Force. This took me to the distant places I always wanted to visit. Sometimes by train, but mostly by plane. After 36 years and spending too many of them in the middle east, I retired and decided to go back to those days as a kid and help others live the dream I once had. 

I hope that the joy people feel riding the Northwest Express Railroad will inspire them to see the world and have their own adventures. Like a real train, it’s a way to sit back, relax, and see things from a different perspective.
