Your Support Helps Preserve the Past The Midland Railway Historical Association’s primary goal is to obtain and restore historically significant railroad artifacts and equipment to foster the public’s awareness and appreciation of railroading, both past and present. Our organization utilizes this equipment in the operation of a common carrier demonstration passenger excursion railroad entirely volunteer-staffed and operated. The Midland Railway Historical Association is a not-for-profit, educational, charitable IRS 501(c)(3) tax-exempt corporation.
The Midland Railway operates excursion trains & special events on a line originally constructed in 1867. Train rides feature an over-20-mile round trip from Baldwin City via "Norwood, Kansas" to Ottawa Junction, Kansas, traveling through scenic Eastern Kansas farmland and woods via vintage railway equipment. Join us for a train ride - bring the whole family! We are in easy reach of Kansas City, Overland Park, Olathe, Ottawa and Lawrence, Topeka, and nearby communities.
