Catering Options

Email us for a full list of catering options from our preferred catering company, Honeybrine Catering.

If you do not see an option that suits your style and would like something different, we are more than happy to customize and make this a memorable event for your guests. We are committed to making your experience great!

With your train rental you do have the option to bring your own food aboard. We ask that we serve the alcohol for monitoring purposes. You can do a full no host bar and have your guests pay per drink or open up a tab and we can keep track and settle their bill at the end of the ride. The tab must be held open with a credit card kept safely behind the bar.
