Tourist railroad fare survey–2019

By June 24, 2019 June 26th, 2019 Features

By Aaron Isaacs, HRA editor

In 2014 I published a survey of the fares for tourist railroad and museum rides. In an attempt to get an apples-to-apples comparison, I added a calculation of the fare per ride hour, including layover or stopover time in the middle of the trip. It revealed a wide range of different charges for the same basic train experience and that may have surprised some operators.

It’s five years later and time to update the survey. As before, it lists only adult fares for a basic train ride, no food service included. This time I deleted museums where the train ride is included in the gate admission. There are 182 listings, which is almost everyone in North America. With few exceptions, the fares have risen since 2014, sometimes by quite a bit.

Added to the survey this time is the fare per mile, along with the fare per hour. It seemed like a good idea to view it two different ways.

At the bottom of both tables are the average trip hours, fares, fare per trip hour, trip miles and fare per trip mile.

The survey appears twice–sorted by state and province, and sorted by fare per trip hour, highest to lowest. Hope it helps you make some pricing decisions.
